DOKU.TECH, August 5th, 2017 @ Dokufest Film Festival in Prizren.
To continue our discussion left early this year at Termokiss we will once again bring you some of the most curious minds of the tech world to discuss Fear, Hope and Everything in Between.


We’re bringing you careful observers able to spot patterns in accelerating changes that technology produces in society. We’re bringing you innovators who are pushing the boundaries and breaking the walls to move us all forward. We're bringing forward thinking DJs to spice things up and add a dash of party to the event.

We invite you to listen, question, doubt, suggest and discuss. Don’t hesitate to bring your fears, hopes and everything in between. We might not always be able to turn every fear into hope but we can try together to better understand complex processes shaping our lives ever faster.

Lumbardhi Cinema, DOKU.TECH’s newest venue, is an important evidence and value of Kosovar cultural identity. In 2014, the Civil Society came together for the Initiative for Protection of Lumbardhi Cinema and saved the building from being torn down and ceased the process of privatization. Lumbardhi cinema is a rare and valuable building, part of Kosovo’s cultural heritage.

Why are digital nomads all over social media, and why are they so comical? How can real, ambitious entrepreneurs and freelancers make it, and increase their output, while travelling through foreign communities?

The importance of technology and virtual channels to connect and engage Diaspora in advancing the development and democratization of their home countries.

Rapid changes in technology, changes in media, falling prices, and planned obsolescence have resulted in a fast-growing surplus of electronic waste around the globe. Join us for an alternative use of your e-waste. The Anibar Junkyard Robots Workshop aims to promote creative reuse of electronic parts through animation. Your old computers, phones, or printers turned into action figures used to create short stop-motion animation films. A life cycle of material usage!

This Design Thinking Masterclass will focus on the principles of low-fidelity prototyping and testing with end-users. Mark and Elina will show various techniques e.g. pen and paper wire-frames and storyboards to demonstrate the power of rapid prototyping and how you could test new ideas and decrease development time and cost.

Beyond the Hero is an endless arcade shooter set in multiple galaxies of the universe. You are Captain 13, the sole survivor of a voyager fleet sent with the mission of clearing asteroid clusters. Your mission is one you may not return from, but it is a matter of life or death for the explorers travelling to these galaxies to colonize and expand humanity’s borders throughout the universe. You and your ship cruise through the galaxy where you have to destroy as many meteors as you can target. The larger your score, the safer the galaxies!
