Dokufestival je bila iskra sa kojom je započeto nakon rata, i nekako je obeležio naše mlade koji su odrastali na Kosovu, jer je to bio naš izlaz. Bilo je to mesto gde odeš I osećaš se povezano kroz filmove koji su puštani I kroz ljude koji su tu dolazili. I dalje predstvlja nešto što čuvam I volim.
Nita Deda is the director of Dokufest, an international documentary and short film festival that takes place in Prizren in August of each year. Deda sees cinema as a tool through which people are able to connect to values and ideas outside of their own, something that she said is important in Kosovo where a lack of visa liberalisation limits the ability of young people to travel. “You have to share culture. One of the difficulties for talent here is that it can not be seen outside, simply because artists from Kosovo cannot travel, cannot get a visa,” said Deda. “This is why it’s very important to curate and nurture local talent.”
