The first International Documentary Film Festival of Caucasus - CinéDOC-Tbilisi was held for the 5th time this year. During 6 days cinemas and varieties of open spaces hosted lots of interesting movies, master classes and discussions. Up to 60 invited guests, 30 countries and 67 documentaries participated in this year's festival.

Two Georgian films participated in the festival program. "New Life of Gogita" by Levan Koghuashvili in International Competition, which was premiered at CinéDOC-Tbilisi. Another one was "Didube, last stop" by Shorena Tevzadze in Focus Caucasus.

Koghuashvili's "New Life of Gogita" is a story about a man trying to return to normal life after 14 years of imprisonment. His wishes are quite modest: he only wants to have a private house and marry a good woman. But who would get interested in the poor farmer and former convict who still lives with his mother?

The hero of the film by Shorena Tevzadze is Niko, a man who has one small veterinary shop in the busiest place of the city. He sits there with his wife - Tsitso, and writes poems. During his free time, he talks to Nodar and Lily about his dreams, wishes, and music.

The closing ceremony of the festival was held yesterday at the Palace of Youth. Jury awarded the winners: International Competition - "You have no idea how much I love you" (directed by Pawel Lozinski, Poland), Focus Caucasus - "Didube, Last Stop", (Director Shorena Tevzadze, Georgia), CivilDOC - "Ada for mayor" (Pau Faus, Spain).
