UNDERHILL FEST is dedicated to full-length documentary films created in low production capacity countries and independent productions, films that strike with innovation, ideas and powerful storylines. The aim of our festival is primarily to educate the public about the special place that this particular form of film enjoys in the world, as well as about the power that documentaries have in presenting both urgent and those seemingly trivial social problems in the world. It is a humane and socially engaged project: isolated from any institutionalized framework, open, slightly alternative and rebellious, intended solely for a free, creative and curious visitor who likes art and film, and who can recognize the seriousness of the problems that documentary films are dealing with.
