Is there something more inspiring than getting together with like-minded people, exchanging ideas, making plans together and talking cinema and business? The past two years have shown how much personal connections and communal experiences mean to us and how they can move our world.

A first glimpse into the festival programme

Join us for a full week packed with fantastic premieres of the newest documentaries and animated films from around the world and discuss with the filmmakers in interactive Q&As and Masterclasses. We honour Serbian director Mila Turajlić in the Hommage and highlight DOK Leipzig’s strong connections to Eastern Europe with a programme of current films about the lived realities in the region. With a special spotlight on the artistic variety of animated film we’ll present a focused animation programme within the festival.

What DOK Industry has in store for you

In venues all around Leipzig’s picturesque city centre, the DOK Industry Programme invites you to meet with colleagues, present the projects in your pipeline and find new partners to build sustainable relationships. The DOK Industry Programme takes place on-site in Leipzig during the festival week, followed by two days of online networking offers on 24–25 October.

The festival week is topped off with inspirational talks, curated networking opportunities and social gatherings such as Get Togethers and Lounges. From 17 to 30 October, selected films from the programme (including competitions) will be available for on demand online viewing for DOK Leipzig’s accredited film professionals. 

Many opportunities await you in Leipzig to meet, connect and exchange. See you this fall!
