DOK im Knast

DOK im Knast

The Jugendstrafvollzugsanstalt Regis-Breitingen (Regis-Breitingen Juvenile Prison) is DOK Leipzig’s most unusual location. The screenings during the festival week are open to the detainees, the local audience and a limited number of accredited specialist visitors, to whom a return shuttle from and to Leipzig is provided. Prior registration is required.

 

Since 2016 a group of detainees chooses the films from the works included in the festival’s Official Selection. At the end a jury of juvenile prisoners awards the prize "Thought Discovery" to one of the films.
