DOK Leipzig 30 October – 5 November 2017
60th International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film



Do you want to watch documentaries and animation year-round, without having to wait for TV or the DOK film week? Check out the links below! DOK Leipzig regularly partners with online platforms to share our curation with the whole world, and we want to share it also with you. Some content is free, others you have to pay for, but each time you stream or download, revenues flow back to the pockets of the filmmakers.

Happy exploring!

Doc Alliance Online Channel

Doc Alliance project is the result of a long-term creative partnership of 7 key European film festivals developed since 2006. The international alliance includes CPH:DOX Copenhagen, DOK Leipzig, FID Marseille, Doclisboa, Jihlava IDFF, Docs Against Gravity FF and Visions du Réel Nyon. The aim of the initiative is to advance the documentary genre, support its diversity and continuously promote quality creative documentary films.
