Zehn Personen stehen zusammen vor einer Hauswand, die in einem grafischen Muster in weiß, orange und braun gekachelt ist. Es sind zwei Männer und acht Frauen. Alle blicken in die Kamera, einige lächeln.

Film selections are underway

Thanks to all submitters for the more than 2,500 films that we’ve received this year! It’s been non-stop screenings for our Selection Committee.

Who’s who?

Since July they are watching the numerous submissions: Filmmaker Daniel Abma, film and media scholar Borjana Gaković, curator and culture worker Djamila Grandits, film journalists Anke Leweke and Carolin Weidner, and curator, author and film mediator Luc-Carolin Ziemann.

Along with our festival director Christoph Terhechte, programme coordinators Thérèse Antony and Lina Dinkla, and supported by assistant Samuel Döring, they make up the Selection Committee for the films that will be shown in competition.

We will present the programme lineup in just a few weeks! From 17 to 23 Oktober you can see the selected films on the big screens at DOK Leipzig 2022.
