Join the Friends of DOK Leipzig!


Documentaries and animated films have been anchored in Leipzig for decades. Each year, DOK Leipzig not only presents the most important contemporary works from around the world, but also explores its own unique festival history – always with special attention to the city of Leipzig and the surrounding region. As a hub for audiences and industry professionals alike, the festival sees itself as a platform and mouthpiece for these film genres.


With some 47,000 visitors flocking to DOK Leipzig for a week each year, there has long been a wish to establish a network to connect the festival’s friends and supporters. Now the time has finally come: The DOK Leipzig Circle of Friends has been founded! Film fans can now actively support the festival and promote film culture by contributing their own ideas and organising events through the "Leipziger Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Filmkunst e.V." Together with other film enthusiasts, this non-profit association was launched by our long-standing supporter and friend, IQ Steuerberatungsgesellschaft GmbH.


Gain exclusive insights and take part in exciting encounters throughout the year as an ambassador for spreading the DOK Leipzig excitement. Become part of one of Leipzig's most important cultural institutions. Become a DOK friend!
