Bertha DocHouse is pleased to be a venue for Open City Documentary Festival again in 2017. 


This year, we host a masterclass with acclaimed Russian director Vitaly Mansky, also showing two of his early films as part of the festival's restrospective.

We also have special screenings of British filmmaker Tomas Leach's latest, The Lure, and the stunning A Moon of Nickel and Ice, set in Siberia and directed by François Jacob. Both Tomas Leach and François Jacob will be joining us for Q&As at their respective screenings.
