The International Documentary Festival globale is a non-profit, non-commercial film festival, free of competition but with space for discussion, cinematic experience and interchange of social and political content.
Originally founded in Berlin, the idea of the globale was carried into different cities since 2003. Thus, the globale was already realized in Warsaw (Poland), or also Montevideo (Uruguay), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and also in Bogotá (Colombia).
Since 2011 the Festival Internacional de Vídeo Documental Globale Bogotá has been running in the Colombian capital under the heading of "Miradas Críticas y Emancipadoras" (critical and emancipated views).
This year, the festival is dedicated to the following topics:
1) Repressive policies against social movements.
2) Racist and/or feminicidal violence.
3) Autonomous and collective experiences for socio-political transformation.
