Anyone up for a documentary film festival?

I've mentioned quite a few times, as recently as earlier this week, that I like to listen to the international broadcasters that used to be on short-wave radio back in the day, but are now mostly Internet only. The following story on the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival was mentioned in the current affairs section of Radio Prague's Thursday broadcast:

Documentary film festival offers "new perspective on everyday reality"

In just a few days, the small town of Jihlava on the Bohemian-Moravian border will once again become the centre of the European documentary scene. The annual Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival, which is in its 19th edition, will offer hundreds of film screenings as well as some highly-anticipated guests, such as Masha Alyokhina or the "famous" Syrian immigrant Osama Mohsen.

There's more to the report at the link above. If you want to listen to the report, there's an MP3 here that's 1.6MB and just shy of four minutes. The home page for the Jihlava (the Slavic J is pronounced like the English Y) International Documentary Film Festival, which runs from October 27 through November 1, can be reached here.
