The 11th edition of the Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montréal (RIDM) offers a diverse program with a hundred films from the four corners of the planet. The 11th RIDM will take place at the Cinémathèque québécoise, at the NFB Theatre, Cinema du Parc, at the Agora Hydro-Quebec du Cœur des sciences at UQAM and at the Grande Bibliothèque. And once again, in order to extend their reach outside of Montreal, the RIDM will present a selection of documentary films in Quebec City, in collaboration with the Musée de la civilisation de Québec.

The Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival annually takes place on six days in mid November to show the diversity and current tendencies of documentary work. It is organized by the Filmladen Kassel e.V., an arthouse cinema that has been an important part of the culture and media scene of the city of Kassel since 1980 due to its manifold and committed activities. The festival presents about 230 international documentary films as well as experimental and artistic works.

The International Festival of Documentary and Short Film of Bilbao
(ZINEBI) this year celebrates its fiftieth anniversary. Created in 1959 by the Instituto Vascongado de Cultura Hispánica (“Basque Institute of Hispanic Culture”), then an agency under the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, under its initial name of Certamen Internacional de Cine Documental Iberoamericano y Filipino (“International Competition for Spanish-American and Philippine Documentary Films”), circa 1968, coinciding with the rise of short fiction films in Spain, knew how to find its identity in this field and was able to expand its activities in the international arena. In 1974 it won recognition from the International Federation of Film Producers Associations (FIAPF) as a competitive festival in the categories of fiction, documentary and animation and in 1981 its organisation and management were institutionally taken over by the City of Bilbao.
