With contemporary international films, unique special programmes and a rich programme for children and adults, our competition categories give exciting artistic works a place to celebrate their premieres. This year, as response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects, we will present our film programme in selected Leipzig venues and online as Video on Demand available to audiences in Germany and to accredited industry professionals.
Audiences in Leipzig will be able to attend the DOK Neuland extended reality exhibition. Each year this creates a world where visitors can experience profound stories in unexpected virtual spaces.
