Open City Documentary Festival 2015 Announced



The 16th of June 2015 has two big events opening their doors to the public. One is a Renewable Energy mini-conference in Inverness, but you can only attend this if you make your own clothes and name your kids after garden plants. The other big event, which takes place in London, is the Open City Documentary Festival, or OCD for short (they didn’t think this one through). There is an official trailer for the festival that you can see below, and features ninety seconds of letters and words whizzing around the screen, set to a relaxing hard core drum and bass tune.

Now in its fifth year, and taking place between the 16th and 21st of June, the Open City Documentary Festival creates an open space in London to nurture and champion the art of creative documentary and non fiction film makers. The festival takes place in venues across London, and offers people the chance to see the best in contemporary international documentary, as well as film maker Q and A’s, industry panels, workshops, live music, networking (standing around awkwardly pretending to listen to what other people do for a living) and parties.

For more information on what promises to be an exciting, vibrant and packed festival, and to see the full 2015 programme, which has only just been announced, you can visit the Open City Docs website here.
