Namely, the cooperation between SuperUh and the Vinkovci music documentary festival DORF continues again this year on Iskon’s festival beach in Primošten in the period from August 4 to 6, after which screenings will move to Vinkovci from August 23 to 25. The festival is held under the auspices of the Croatian Audiovisual Center, the City of Vinkovci and Vukovar-Srijem County, and the partners of the festival are Žedno Uho and the Vinkovci City Museum.A total of 8 films will be presented to the audience in Primošten, while the 12th DORF opens with a screening of a 2017 film by a guest from Great Britain, Phil Cox, about the cult funk megastar Betty Davis called “Betty – They Say I’m Different”. German director Christine Franz’s documentary “Bunch of Kunst” from 2017 will have its Croatian premiere, which is a kind of chronicle of the author’s experience during her multi-year tour with the British music duo Sleaford Mods. The third in the series of works “Music is the Art of the Hour” directed by Igor Zupe deals with the most important albums of Slovenian music, while in this sequel he deals with the first album of the Slovenian music group Laibach. “Electric Dreams” is the second Croatian premiere of director Dušan Moravec, a two-time DORF winner. The story, told in the production of RTV Slovenia, tells how “Yugoslav Jean-Michael Jarre” paved the way for many musicians with albums and music until the end of the 70’s.The film “Invisible Hands” by Marina Gioti and Georges Salameh from Greece talks about the project of musician Alan Bishop, bassist and vocalist of the cult Sun City Girls. This poetic documentary about a musical journey to Cairo was screened in 2017 at the Berlinale. One of the most interesting documentaries shown at DORF, was on the program of this year’s festival. It is a film “Spit’n’split” written by Jerome Vanderwattyne.In the accompanying program, the organizers announce the presentation of the exclusive “Secrets of the History of DORF” powered by PechaKucha presentation which was promoted in Zagreb in early June in the Summer Garden Vintage industrial bar as part of 4 warm up programs.
