MINSK, 30 September (BelTA) – This year Eurasia.DOC, the CIS Countries Documentary Film Festival, will be running from 3 to 7 October, the festival program director Valery Shekhovtsov told reporters, BelTA has learned.

"We will hold the festival from 3 to 7 October. Some of the events will be held in Minsk, some in Smolensk. Applications are open today," Valery Shekhovtsov said.

He also announced the themes that the festival will explore this year. These are the geopolitical conflicts in the modern world, information wars, and the protection of historical heritage."This year we have focused on a number of themes that, in our opinion, are important. Among them are the 100th anniversary of the USSR, memorable dates of the Great Patriotic War, global security and new information wars," the program director said. “The festival has grown into a project that explores a person, his life, fate, hopes, experiences, and anxieties. Films about this are of keen interest to our viewers."
