Maribor is in Slovenia, a country with 2 million people. Slovenia is a green country, more than 60% is covered with forests, but you can also find the sea (48 km of beach) and mountains for hiking (Triglav 2864 m). This new festival is starting by presenting national documentary productions, but it has the intention to develop into an international documentary film festival.
