Open City Documentary Festival – The Work of René Farabet

4 – 9 September 2018
Various Locations


Celebrating the art of non-fiction, Open City Documentary Festival creates an open space in London to nurture and champion the art of creative documentary and non-fiction filmmakers. We aim to challenge and expand the idea of documentary in all its forms. We provide a platform for emerging talent as well as established masters working within the documentary form.

The festival takes place over six days in venues across Central London, and consists of international contemporary and retrospective non-fiction film, audio and cross media, as well as filmmaker Q&As, industry panels, workshops, networking and parties.

In the Dark and Radio Atlas are straddling the intersection of audio and radio to host a very special presentation of a newly translated work by René Farabet – Words from Inside (St Maur Prison) – celebrating the legacy of a master of creative audio a year on from his passing. We will also have René Farabet’s partner, Kaye Mortley, present at the event to discuss his work and life.
