We celebrate the future of documentary filmmaking!

The DOK.forum sees itself as a think tank for the documentary film industry and as a platform for projects in the development process.

The DOK.forum Perspectives invite with panels, workshops and case studies to develop visions and impulses and to pursue relevant media policy issues. As a co-production and ideas market, the DOK.forum Marketplace provides concrete offers for the realisation of new documentary film projects.

In recent years, the DOK.forum has established itself as a permanent meeting place for the German-speaking industry – with a growing programme for international filmmakers.
