We are dedicating this year’s Homage to the filmmaker Annik Leroy, looking back at older festival films and forward to new hybrid developments, and taking a detailed look at 25 years of our animated film competition in the “Re-Visions” programme. We also have exciting films on offer in the “Kids DOK” programme, to once again fill the little ones with wonder. At Leipzig’s main railway station, alongside films currently in competition, a series of films on industrial heritage will be shown, and a film by Kurt Tetzlaff will serve as a preview of a Special Programme about the filmmaker in 2021. The “Animation Perspectives” dialogue is also among our Special Programmes once again, this time featuring media artists Patrick Buhr and Aaron Jablonski.
