The 21st edition of the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival (TDF), one of South-Eastern Europe's biggest film gatherings and the most important documentary festival in Greece, which will take place from 1-10 March at seven venues across the city, has announced its full programme.

TDF will present 178 feature and 49 short documentary films across 20 sections, including 11 world, 12 international and four European premieres. It will open with the international premiere of Nick Broomfield's Leonard Cohen biopic Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love.
