The non-profit Diogène has more than 30 years of experience in the production of independent artistic documentary films, both in Belgium and abroad. The association has worked in collaboration with television channels, international institutions and NGOs and has organised cultural and social events in Europe. The name of the Festival refers to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that have now become the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The MILLENIUM Festival is a high-level international event in Brussels, the heart of Europe. The Festival highlights films whose themes are linked to the major challenges and objectives of the 21st century, adopted by the United Nations in 2000, and which reflect humanity’s dreams and ambitions for a fairer and more equitable world.
Since its creation in 2009 by Lubomir Gueorguiev and Zlatina Rousseva, the MILLENIUM Festival presents every year the best of committed documentary cinema from around the world. It supports innovation in documentary creation, authenticity and investment by independent directors. We are particularly attentive to new emerging talents.
