Film literacy programme DOK.education
DOK.education is the year-round educational programme of Germany's largest documentary film festival DOK.fest München. DOK.education's offer is aimed at school classes and teachers as well as interested young people and families, all year round and during the festival in May.
Beside the work in film reception, film practice, training for teachers, presence workshops for school classes and an annual youth film competition, the heart of this programme is the "Schule des Sehens" which helds a good 50 school class workshops for three age groups in the cinema. Through the initiatives of DOK.education with numerous cultural providers, TV institutions and schools, project manager Maya Reichert has built up a large qualitative network in which the artistically narrative documentary film is always at the centre.
All projects of DOK.education combine media literacy and cultural education: Artistic documentaries tell real stories through cinematic images. They offer a wide range of approaches to encourage children and young people to observe closely, to see the art in filmmaking and to raise their awareness for different levels of truth and reality in cinematic storytelling.
We will keep you up to date here which DOK.education programmes are part of the Munich International Documentary Film Festival and which take place all year round. Detailed information about DOK.education can only be provided in German at the moment.
