Originally scheduled for October 2015 during Evacuation Day, the 5th edition of Douz Doc Days (this year, for security reasons, the festival will be held in Djerba and will be called the Djerba Doc Days) was postponed to March 2016. The new date was also symbolically chosen to fall with the celebration of Independence Day. The Kamel Lazaar Foundation supports this project. It is defined primarily as an experience, a journey, an invitation to explore and to mark out geographical spaces and its representations. The festival also questions this aspect of globalization. This event wants to showcase the importance of documentary films in the MENA region and beyond, but also to involve local populations. Inviting, for example, women of Douz (artisans, housewives, high school students) to be photographed – some for the first time – in their immediate environment, the festival seeks to promote a methodology to spread artistic practices linked to the image, in all social classes. Elsa Despiney, from the Kamel Lazaar Foundation, is member of the 2016 Jury.
