Let’s Get Started: DOK Leipzig 2019 Is Open for Entries
From now on documentaries, animated films and animated documentaries of all lengths as well as interactive works can be submitted to the 62nd edition of DOK Leipzig.
The submitted films may be nominated for one of the festival’s six prestigious competitions and several special awards with a total prize money of about 75,000 euros. Additionally, DOK Leipzig is a qualifying festival for the ACADEMY AWARDS© and the European Film Awards.
“We are looking forward to productions that present unusual perspectives. Films rethinking traditional concepts or inventing new ones. Above all, we are looking for films revealing how documentary and animated film absorbs and expresses the present”, says Ralph Eue, programmer of DOK Leipzig.
Apart from films, you can also submit interactive works for the DOK Neuland exhibition. We welcome all forms of innovative new media works, such as 360° films, virtual reality projects (films, installations, plays), works of augmented reality or mixed reality, participatory films, web documentaries and apps – and many more that we may not even be aware of.
The first entry deadline for films is Saturday, 5 May, and the final entry deadline for films and interactive works is on Sunday, 7 July 2019. DOK Leipzig 2019 will take place from 28 October to 3 November.
