Berlin - GERMANY
August 13 to 18, 2010

The 6th Annual GLOBIANS DOC FEST BERLIN presents a well-rounded program of documentaries exploring and promoting a global understanding of world and cultural topics including subcultures, traditions, religions, rural life, urban issues, the environment, globalization, technology, wildlife, nature, and the future over six days in Central Europe's film production hot spot, Berlin, Germany.

The Festival has been host to such celebrated documentaries and documentarians as WHEEL OF TIME from Werner Herzog, Lee Kazimir's MORE SHOES, BATEY MOSQUITO by Eduardo Miyar and Carmen Ballvé, IN THE MOMENT by Diogo Ueno, DAS HAUS AN DER STRASSE by Julian Weber, WELCOME TO MACINTOSH (European Premiere) by Josh Rizzo and Rob Baca, as well as all seven parts of THE WAR by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. After opening the 2006 Festival, 10 QUESTIONS FOR THE DALAI LAMA received three bids and later went on to a nationwide theatrical release.

Exberliner Magazine hails the Festival this way: "Red carpets, award ceremonies, and fashion critiques may be absent, but the Globians Film Festival's programme, intimacy, and authenticity more than make up for its lack of bombast."

With its casual and informal style, Globians Doc Fest Berlin feels more like a workshop and exclusive screening encounter where filmmakers can interact with their audience and peers instead of getting lost in a hectic festival schedule. Also choosing to be a non-competitive festival, Globians honors all official selections equally.
