“Krafta Doc International Art Making Film Festival” is an international festival of short and documentary films and artists’ videos intended to explore and make visible the process of creation across science, the arts and the humanities. Creativity means perceiving the world in new ways, making connections between persons and disciplines, finding innovative solutions. Creativity is the field of the artists, these original thinkers and visionaries, and we want to know their stories, to watch and share them. The aim of Krafta is to investigate the local and international creative production through high-quality films while opening up discursive debates on tradition and innovation in the arts and crafts with invited professionals.
