AdDOC is the first high school documentary festival organised by teenagers. During the month of May 2017, the films were screened in 25 high schools from 12 Romanian towns and were followed by discussions with the directors and producers.
AdDOC Fest appeared thanks to the initiative of the One World Romania Film Club's coordinators from several cities. The teenagers participated in an intensive training about the importance of social responsibility and learned about event planning mechanisms at a national level. Together, they selected ten recent Romanian productions which present the everyday society with the good and the bad and they divided them in three categories based on the subjects they approach and the questions they raise.
The fest was developed around the "Truth and dare" tagline. They changed "or" with "and" because our society has truths and if they cause pain, we are challenged to change them starting with the documentaries.
