Awards from 6th DOCK International Documentary Historical Film Festival in Burgas (Bulgaria)


By Phillip Bergson

Member of  International Jury 17--22 September 2023


The interest in historical cinema over the past decade is a trend in contemporary documentaries. Bearing this concept in mind not only across screens globally, but also here in Bulgaria, we were launching the largest forum for International Historic Documentary Cinema – DOCK. It will take place in Burgas over 5 days – between the 17th and the 22nd of September 2022..
The inaugural edition of the festival will offer:

  • An official competition programme, in which 10 films will take part;
  •  A special programme: “80 years since the rescue of the Bulgarian Jews”

The evaluation of the films will be made by a highly-qualified international jury, which will present the awards of 1000 Euro.
The festival will be attended by actors, directors and screenplay writers from around the globe, and the audience will have free access to all the screenings.
DOCK’s mission is to become one of the most notable events on the Bulgarian cultural scene, which will contribute to exploring world history in an attractive and creative way.







1. 1000 euro and the Certificate of the guild of the historians for historical credibility and detailed approach on the topic go to 1942 : THE VELODROME D’HIVER ROUNDUP


2. "Award for Tolerance" to the team of the film "Music Under the Swastica: The Maestro and the Cellist of Auschwitz". (Check the certificate for more info)


3. A special award for Homelandsickness from the Municipality of the city of Burgas. The award has a certificate for preserving and saving European historical memory. The award itself is a compass, which is the official symbol of the city of Burgas and its meaning is connected with the roots and the idea that we always should find the way to our home. 


4. A certificate for Man Under Surveillance for the director's active civic position


5. Unrooted received an award from the President of the Jury which includes a screening of the film next year at the European Parliament in  Bruxelles, with the participation of 5 people of the film team, the jury and the managing team of the festival.
