Open City Docs Fest 2013
The programme for this year’s Open City Docs Fest has been released online, and promises to showcase a wide variety of documentaries on a range of thematically grouped subjects. From City Stories, featuring films that look at the cities we live in and how we relate to them and those we share them with, to Moving Lives, which showcases individuals whose stories would not otherwise be heard, the festival promises to be eyeopening no matter what you choose to go and see.
Amongst the festival’s 30 premiers are the Cannes award winning Sophia’s Last Ambulance, about a lone ambulance that services the injured in a city of 2 million people, and 12 O’Clock Boys, the story of one boy and his dream of joining a rogue biker gang in Baltimore.
The festival takes place from June 20th to 23rd at various venues based around the UCL Campus in central London, as well as the ICA and Hackney Picturehouse. The programme can be viewed online here.
