BEIRUT: Had things gone as planned, DOX BOX, Syria’s international documentary film festival, would have staged its fifth edition in Damascus this past week. The closing night of that event would have been March 15, which also happens to be the date chosen to designate the start of the present insurrection in Syria.

Since the fifth edition of DOX BOX had to be cancelled, ProAction Films, the nonprofit film group that organizes the festival, and several international collaborators – principally the New York-based ArteEast and the Network of Arab Arthouse Screens – will stage “DOX BOX Global Day.” This program of Syrian documentary films is being screened simultaneously in 32-odd venues around the world from March 14-16.
