Located in a refurbished Philips testing laboratory, now the cities art centre, DOCfeed is an annual documentary industry gathering in Eindhoven, Netherlands. It’s 2016 program hosted international films, workshops and plenty of Steen Brugge Tripel; Good times were had!
The festival also exhibited video installations by Marieke De Vries, Francina Stolk and an anti-selfie photo session, by photographer Annemarieke van Peppen, providing a great deal of diversity over the festivals duration.
For me, DOCfeed’s strength is it’s brave stance of programming expressive work, not shying away from author-led documentaries. This complements the festivals intimate environment where filmmakers can talk with other filmmakers, producers, programmers and audience over a Steen Brugge Tripel.
Tapes From The Revolutionary won Best Short Documentary film at DOCfeed 2016, where I was presented the award by Docfeed’s creative Director, Frans Mouws. Again, a big thanks to all at the festival!
