For the past 17 years, DOK Leipzig has been closely following developments in animated documentary filmmaking and consistently presenting innovative ideas and projects in this area intended to feed interest in the combination of different techniques and genres. This year's panel on Animadoc film for the first time takes the step toward cross-media. The documentary project Cosmic Top Secrettells of a daughter's closing in on the incredible double life of her parents not in movie form, but as an animated story and interactive computer game. The second project by Sheila Sofian is a more traditional 60-minute documentary about people who were unjustly in prison and released only after many years. The personal stories are almost exclusively visualized through animated images and, through the technique and form, textured with subtext.
The panel is intended for all industry attendees who want to know more about Animadoc and the possibilities of this film form.
