“We are looking forward to productions that present unusual perspectives. Films rethinking traditional concepts or inventing new ones. Above all, we are looking for films revealing how documentary and animated film absorbs and expresses the present.”
Submissions can be registered via a form in our myDOK area. You'll need to create a new myDOK account before you can fill in the submission form.
