Plan your Visit
DOK Leipzig is an annual festival for international and German documentaries and animations that takes place every year in autumn. In 2022, we will celebrate our 65th festival edition in the week from 17 to 23 October.
Whether it’s watching, discussing or celebrating films together — the shared festival experience is what DOK Leipzig is all about for us. We are planning to celebrate our 65th edition on-site this year, and we look forward to welcoming you to Leipzig cinemas and venues from 17 to 23 October. “DOK Stream” will also still be available online, where viewers can access our selected film highlights on demand throughout Germany after the festival.
Online ticket sales will start with the launch of the complete festival programme beginning of October 2022.

Beginning of October, you can find a city map on our website that helps you navigate through Leipzig from one location to another.
We are committed to making DOK Leipzig as barrier-free as possible. We depend on the infrastructure of the respective venues but we work to remove barriers. You can find updated information about barrier-free access and programme here in October 2022.
