    MAJORDOCS: Festival Director Miguel Eek speaks with Modern Times Review on the challenges, programme and approach of the 2021 experience.

This affected us a lot and meant a drop in international participation and especially the impossibility to bring most of the filmmakers. This year, flexibility is already a key element . . .
