Festival Statement

DOK Leipzig stands up for open-mindedness and diversity


DOK Leipzig is disgusted by the xenophobic attacks in our region. It`s shocking that people who are seeking shelter are being defamed and assaulted.


Films from all over the world reach DOK Leipzig every year. Through our film selection we are constantly tracing migration movements and its causes. We are convinced: You can`t close your eyes to a complex reality when you perceive it through in-depth films. That`s why we are working even harder on a programme that opens up perspectives and brings people together.
