This year’s EIFF programme reflects the ability of documentary film to amaze, inspire, challenge, provoke and fascinate audiences.
Documentary cinema’s continued rise in popularity in recent years has been remarkable, with filmmakers stretching the boundaries of the format, tone and style of non-fiction films. This selection celebrates the variety of the genre and is a formidable way to travel the world, see strange and unusual sights, and delve into fascinating stories.
Highlights include Faceless, which looks at the Hong Kong pro-democracy protests; Fathom, which examines how whales communicate; and Laurent Garnier: Off the Record.
