DOK and Anima Talks

Inspiring film talks with the filmmakers of the competitions about different topics.

DOK Talks

Sometimes topics come up during screening Q&As that need more discussion than our tight schedule allows for. DOK Talks cover the aesthetics, ethics, politics and technology, the craft and discourse of making documentary films.

 

Tue 27 Oct

Time Will Tell – the making of a long-term observation

This talk is dedicated to the opening film by Andreas Voigt and gives an insight into the making of a long term observation over a period of almost 30 years. How to follow up with the protagonists? How to structure a huge mass of material?

 

Wed 28 Oct until Fri 30 Oct

The DOK Talks will focus on the films screened the day before.

 

Sat 31 Oct

We Have to Talk

Documentary and animation filmmakers are invited to share their experience of the new DOK Leipzig genre-mix-programming. Do animations and documentaries suit each other? Are there benefits or rather losses on one or both sides? Do we have to talk? Let’s assume we do!

Anima Talks

The Anima Talks offer an opportunity to interview the filmmakers in person. In the cosy atmosphere of the Passage Kinos Café, the audience can enter into a dialogue and will get answers to questions the Q&A after the film screenings might have left open. You will even have the chance to meet the animation film’s protagonists – many filmmakers bring their puppets and sketch books.

 

Wed 28 Oct until Fri 30 Oct

The Talks will focus on the films screened the day before.

 

Sat 31 Oct

The Anima Talk will move to CineStar.

We Have to Talk

Documentary and animation filmmakers are invited to share their experience of the new DOK Leipzig genre-mix-programming. Do animations and documentaries suit each other? Are there benefits or rather losses on one of both sides? Do we have to talk? Let’s assume we do!

Moving Borders –
A Reading With Ingo Schulze

DOK Talk SpecialMoving Borders – A Reading With Ingo Schulze

‘My problem was and is not the disappearance of the East but (…) of a West with a human face’, Ingo Schulze writes in his volume of essays Was wollen wir? A critical observer of reunited Germany, his recurrent theme is how history is inscribed into people’s lives. On the occasion of the retrospective he reads printed and unpublished texts.

Danger Zone. Art and Censorship

DOK Talk SpecialDanger Zone. Art and Censorship

It seems that more and more filmmakers are working in a mine field. Not only due to the many conflict zones worldwide but also due to the diverse mechanisms of prohibition of film production and distribution. Still, many filmmakers take the risk to lose their work, homeland, freedom or even more and search for creative ways to undermine such restrictions. What is the relationship between censorship and art? Read more

Women in Documentary

DOK Talk SpecialRebels Don’t Wait for Permission: Women in Documentary

A session born of the fact that there shall only be one female-directed film represented in the German Competition of DOK Leipzig in 2015. Of the 116 new feature docs selected for the festival, only 45 are directed by women and 10 of those 45 by a male co-director. A crisis is on our front doorstep, one we have failed to see. It's time for change! Join us for an open panel discussion discussing the challenges standing between female directors and producers completing feature length films.
