The Valencia Docs, International Documentary Film Festival of Valencia, this year celebrates its V edition with an international focus.

The festival represents an essential event in the cultural agenda of Valencia and has the merit of making the public know about the non-fictional works.

As its own Manifesto says, the Valencia Docs is a festival that is above all “stories, views, perspectives, experiences, and exchange of cultures”.

As we have anticipated, this year, for the first time, the call has also been launched outside Spain, thus embracing new narratives and assuming a broader vision.

In these last days of the festival, it will be possible to attend documentary screenings from Spain, France and Poland.
