Belleville Baby wins prize at Dokufest


Mia Engberg's documentary Belleville Baby was awarded with the International Feature Dox prize at Dokufest in Prizren, Kosovo.

Belleville Baby was screened alongside 106 international films in competition at Dokufest, which ran from August 17th - 25th. Director Mia Engberg and producer Tobias Janson attended and held a masterclass on the film. 

The jury motivated:

“The jury selected this film for its masterly direction, taking its audience on an emotional forensic journey with a startling use of images, fragments, and layers of sound. It becomes an open discussion of cinematic narrative forms questioning the way in which we each construct our own memories through stories, part truth, part invention. The jury gives the International DOX prize to Mia Engberg’s Belleville Baby.”
