A focus on the future of documentary filmmaking!

The DOK.forum combines a high-profile think tank with a concrete platform for documentary film projects.

With its Marketplace, DOK.forum provides unique co-production opportunities for the German-speaking industry - including regular events for international professionals. Through targeted matchmaking, the Marketplace brings together the right partners at one table.

The DOK.forum Perspectives invite both professionals and festival visitors to develop new visions and to pursue relevant media policy issues at high-end panels, workshops and case studies.
