Short profile: DORF is a film festival featuring music documentary films. The festival was started in 2007 and was organized by Association of movie fans “RARE” in Vinkovci. The festival is held annually in the first half of March. Movies of all formats are selected in three categories—regional, international and out of competition. DORF largely concentrates on covering regional documentary production, and after several years of activity, it opened to international works, and became a member of the Association of music film festivals.

DORF is hosted simultaneously in Vinkovci and Rijeka, in a variety of venues. Previous guests of the festival include Don Letts, who attended in 2008 and presented his movie on The Clash, Donald McGlynn, David Kleijwegt and Peter Braatz. In addition to screenings, its off programme comprises photography and painting art exhibitions, workshops, concerts, book promotions and round tables.

Each year after the festival, DORF goes touring to other countries and cities in this region—in five years, highlights of the festival were presented in 49 cities throughout Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
