21-28 Oct 2005. Over 100 films from all round the world will be screened this month at the 3rd edition of the Oxdox Documentary Festival in Oxford, around the theme of Worlds in Transition. In an intensive week of workshops, discussions and meetings with over 40 directors, the festival has also included a schools film festival for the first time, which will be hosted by Wheatley Park School, on Friday 21 October. A major retrospective of internationally acclaimed French director Nicolas Philibert is also on offer, with Philibert himself present at the post-screening discussions. This year, the organizers have introduced video-booths at the festivals main venue, the Old Fire Station, where other films made by directors at the festival can be viewed, and there will also be live dance performances and art installations at most of the screenings. Apart from the Old Fire Station at 40 George Street, the other venues involved are Maison Francaise on Norham Road; the Main Lecture Theatre at Oxford Brookes University
