We plan dual: Prospects for the 36th DOK.fest München

Experiencing films on the big screen in the cinema and at home in front of the digital screen - that is our vision for the 36th DOK.fest München. We are very much looking forward to welcoming our audiences back to our venues in May 2021, COVID-19 containment measures permitting. And even then, of course, with all due care and under strict hygiene conditions. At the same time, we are working on presenting you with a large selection of films on the digital screen, as we did last year. We will keep you up to date.
