DOK.forum – THE INDUSTRY PLATFORM OF DOK.fest MÜNCHEN

A focus on the future of documentary filmmaking!

DOK.forum is a think tank for the documentary film industry and a platform for projects in the development process. It has established itself as a meeting place for the German-speaking industry and offers a growing range of services for international filmmakers.

Due to the current exceptional situation, the DOK.forum could take place in its usual form. In order to enable filmmakers to continue their training and networking, our industry events were transferred to the digital realm this year.

The DOK.forum Perspectives with digital events invited to develop visions and impulses, and a diverse range of workshops was also part of the programme. As an online co-production and ideas market, this year the DOK.forum Marketplace again offered various formats for the realization of new documentary film projects.

Participation in the DOK.forum Marketplace and the DOK.forum Perspectives was free of charge this year in order to help ease the current economic situation of many filmmakers.

International Industry Events

The exchange of ideas is now more important than ever before, not only for the documentary film industry. With our international online-events Networks for Future! – Joining Forces for the Documentary Film Industry and Playground Documentary we are overcoming closed borders to bring the European industry together, in order to continue a fruitful exchange and to learn from each other.

DOK.digital – The Future of Storytelling

DOK.digital, the prize for new narrative formats, seeks answers to the question of how facts and stories will be told in an extremly connected world in the future. The five nominated projects will be presented at DOK.forum @home. You can find the selected projects here.
This event will be held in german language.

Consultations

The spread of the coronavirus and the associated restrictions on public life have a massive impact on the work of film-makers. There is a great deal of uncertainty, government rules are not always clearly formulated. With the legal advice workshop and the individual advice of the Kompetenzteam Kultur- und Kreativwirtschaft we react to this situation and offer our local industry the opportunity to obtain comprehensive information.
The consultations will be held in german language.
