Every year, about 1,600 professional guests from more than 80 countries come to Leipzig to participate in over 50 events under the umbrella of DOK Industry. This year, for the first time ever, DOK Industry Programme will be organised as hybrid event. Whether you will join us in Leipzig or online, we are thrilled to invite you to take part in an intense and inspiring festival week and celebrate the film community.

“We aim to provide a platform that allows both onsite and online participants to enter new collaborations in an open and welcoming environment. In doing so, we aim to strengthen the documentary community and make it easier for emerging talents and equity-seeking creative individuals to enter the international market.”
