Doc Alliance reveals its 2023 award nominees

Eight long and eight short documentaries are in the run for this year’s Doc Alliance Award. The nominated films were presented during the Doc Day in Cannes, as well as the 2023 jury.

With the award, the Doc Alliance network honors emerging talents in European documentary film. Each of the seven member festivals and the 2023 guest partner DokuFest chose one feature and one short film from their own programme. Our two DOK Leipzig candidates are “Three Women” (Drei Frauen) by Maksym Melnyk and “Why My Mum Loves Russell Crowe” by Emma van den Berg.

It’s now up to the jury members Jonathan Ali, Anna Berthollet and Arnaud Hée to decide about the winners. The two winning films will be announced at DokuFest in Prizren in August.
