THE FESTIVAL …

The Millenium Festival is organised by Diogène asbl. Diogène (a Non-Profit Organisation – ABSL) has 23 years of experience in the production of documentary films both in Belgium and abroad. It has produced numerous films in collaboration with international institutions and NGOs, organised many cultural and social events in Europe, whilst supervising and following the work of filmmakers around the world.

Seeing, knowing and understanding what is going on around us; penetrating daily life, its exceptions, the cities, the nooks and crannies of the world; each year the Millenium Festival presents over fifty documentaries selected out of 800 applications from across the globe. These films investigate the challenges and goals of the 21st century in a changing world where many of our values and lifestyles are put to the test. They are moving, thought provoking and, most importantly, they concern all of us. These works also show the personal, political and aesthetic commitment of their directors. In short, we are concerned with committed cinema that tells the truth.
