During the exclusive screenings the producers and further involved partners have the opportunity to present their films to a carefully chosen group of industry professionals.

One-on-one discussions and networking are further encouraged by the participants’ lunch.


This year we welcome broadcasters, world sales agents and distributors from the following countries amongst others: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Great Britain, India, Italy, Japan, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, South Korea and the USA.


DOK Leipzig offers a comprehensive overview over current German documentary productions with its German Competition for Documentary Film, the DOK Market and the Leipzig Screenings. The festival is thus actively involved in the support of international distribution for German films.
