In July the world of documentaries is quiet, but only at a glance, because you can still watch our films in various corners of the globe. Check out where – and which – Polish documentaries will get the opportunity to win the hearts of international audiences this month.

This month started well for Martyna Paszko. Her personal documentary “Tell Me More” has a chance to win awards at both the Ravno Selo Film Festival in Serbia and the Pärnu Film Festival in Estonia. At the latter, Andrzej Cichocki's “A Little Bit of Paradise” will also be seeking the jury's recognition.

In the second week of July, the 19th edition of Tabor Film Festival – International Short Film Festival will start in sunny Croatia – featuring Weronika Jurkiewicz's short documentary “The Vibrant Village”. In contrast, equally sunny Italy will have something to cool things down. During the 8th edition of the Bridge Film Festival, viewers will see Marcin Polar's “The Tough” out of competition.

There are also more screenings in store for the documentary “Stolen Fish”. Gosia Juszczak's film will be shown to the audience of One Country One Film in France, European Film Festival Palić in Serbia, and Accra Indie Film Fest in Ghana.

This month, the animated documentary “We Have One Heart” will get several chances for awards. Katarzyna Warzecha's film will first travel to Portugal for Curtas Vila do Conde, then to Kosovo for the Anibar International Animation Festival, and finally visit the Austrian dotdotdot, Vienna's open-air short film festival. 

Tomasz Wolski's “An Ordinary Country” will enjoy two screenings in July. The award-winning documentary will compete for another statuette at the Durban International Film Festival, with an out-of-competition screening later this month in Mallorca during the Atlantida Film Festival.

At the end of the month, we will keep our fingers crossed during the competition screening of Yifan Sun's Family2” at the US Cordillera International Film Festival.
