DOCUTAH isn’t just a film festival…it’s a five day PARTY and every complementary event is one not to be missed. Documentary films engage minds and have the potential to both entertain and educate . Categories such as music, environment and art speak EVENT and Festival planners therefore create more than just a film festival. They create an experience encompassing the film makers, Festival attendees and DSU students.
During 8 years, the orchestra and choir of La Capilla Real de Madrid, played the integral of J.S. Bach’s Cantatas and sacred works in Madrid (Spain). It was a huge challenge, never made outside Germany. We’re talking about a work of enormous dimensions: two hundred Cantatas, two Passions, Motets, Masses, and Oratorios.
Jose del Rio was interested in this great musical adventure and he was following the different concerts of The Royal Chapel for more than two years: Baroque instruments, old churches and 600 musicians and singers all around the world.
Each year, awards are presented in all of the main categories for the top films and filmmakers, writers and actors. The highly coveted Grand Jury Award will be presented to the best film in competition selected from among all the films in the Festival.
