I’m definitely missing my annual documentary shot, living in the wrong country to attend the IDFA, the world’s foremost documentary film festival in Amsterdam which starts today. I have fond memories of spending days and sometimes full nights watching documentaries on subjects as diverse as a travelling circus in Africa post-World War II and remote Georgian villages to Israeli checkpoints and just how it is that our food is so cheap.

It’s taken me until now to figure out that there is a group working to show documentaries locally, Oslo Dokumentarkino. Most of the screenings are at Parkteateret in Grünerløkka, and the best way to keep informed is to sign up to their email list.

Next up is a human rights film festival, showing among others Darwin’s Nightmare (IDFA’s top documentary of the past 20 years) and China Blue, also a past IDFA winner.
