The 10th anniversary festival carries the theme Faith, hope, and machine guns. We want to give the stage and a voice to the people who fight against oppression in the pressure points all over the world. They are often armed only with faith and hope for a better future, and too often fighting against firearms.
Theme documentary films:
Sergei Loznista: Maidan
Alex Gibney: Finding Fela
Sini Andersson: The Punk Singer
The Rhiadi Brothers: Everyday Rebellion
Howard Bustnes: Two Raging Grannies
Liz Marshall: The Ghosts in Our Machine
Talal Derki: Return to Homs
Omar Shargawi, Karim El Hakim: Â½ Revolution
Ben Knight, Travis Rummel: DamNation
Kai Sehr: Skateistan
We'll announce the whole festival program at Wednesday 22.10.
Rokumentti celebrates its 10-year anniversary this year! To honour the anniversary, we organise a ton of special events from an intimate film brunch to a scan through archives and a spectacular open-air event.
On Friday 14th of November, we organise an absurd Films in Ilosaari Open Air spectacle. We know that the idea of an outdoor event in the middle of dark and damp November is absolutely stupid. But that's why we do it! Read more.
Rokumentti also means gigs. Check out the live programme here. The Rokumentti theme selection and the other programme will be announced in mid-October. The tickets sale starts on Monday 27th of October.Â
