– The Industry Platform of DOK.fest München

Think tank for the documentary film industry and platform for projects in the development process

In workshops and other public events, the Perspectives invite you to develop visions and impulses for the future of documentary film.

As a co-production and ideas market, the Marketplace offers various formats for the further development and realisation of new documentary film projects.

We very much appreciate the exchange with our participants on site and would like to invite you to the HFF Munich again in the upcoming edition, if possible. As the further development of measures to contain COVID-19 is not yet foreseeable, we are currently planning a online version of 2021.
