Official selection of Ji.hlava Opus Bonum international competition announced!


Fifteen titles have been selected to the Opus Bonum international competition at the 25th Ji.hlava IDFF.

Eleven films will be screened in their world premiere, and four will have their international premiere at Ji.hlava.

On the occassion of the 25th jubilee edition of Ji.hlava IDFF we have revamped the festival’s competition sections, the jury structure as well as the award categories. The aim is to pay tribute to documentary cinema which has been undergoing enormous changes, at the same time being the real drive behind contemporary filmmaking.

Aside from the main award, the Opus Bonum jury will also hand out awards for the best cinematography, editing, and sound design. At the same time, outstanding formats, such as the best film essay, will be highlighted. The jury will award a prize to the most significant debut film and film from the region of Central and Eastern Europe and thus the Ji.hlava’s traditional sections First Lights and Between the Seas will become a natural part of the main competition.
