News: Open City Documentary Festival 2020 – Request a Festival Brochure


We are still producing a printed brochure this year, albeit in an alternative format and on a reduced print run.

Our 76 page brochure for 2020 is intended as a navigational aid for viewers enjoying our programme from home. Alongside general festival information, the brochure features screening information about our new film screening programmes, alongside a short essay commissioned to accompany each.

The 2020 brochure contains original writing from: Jonathan Ali, Matthew Barrington, Ela Bittencourt, Chris Boeckmann, Cathy Brennan, Phoebe Chen, Maeve Connolly, Jesse Cumming, Hossein Eidizadeh, Carmen Grey, Penny Harvey, Marcus Jack,  Kevin B Lee, Beatrice Loayza, Olaf Möller, Tega Okiti, Wilfred Okoche, Sanjana Varghese, Jordan Rowe, and Margaret Salmon. All of the texts will also be published online.

If you would like to receive a brochure, please provide us with your address before August 24th. Delegates will received a brochure if they complete the relevant field in the accreditation form. We will do our best to ensure that these arrive in time for the start of the festival (9th – 15th September), but cannot always guarantee this due to the unpredictability of postage services during the pandemic.

Register here if you would like to receive a brochure in the post, free of charge.
