A platform for the discussion of media-political, technical and narrative trends
DOK.forum Perspectives invites you to develop visions and impulses for the future of documentary film and to explore relevant media policy issues through panels, workshops and other public events.
In May 2023, DOK.forum Perspectives presented two major conferences that discussed the future of documentary film in all its facets.
How will facts and stories be told in a future interconnected world? DOK.digital seeks answers to the question of how the development of technical possibilities affects non-fictional storytelling. The aim is to encourage the emergence of new innovative projects that combine content with different media formats and platforms in a meaningful way. This year, we are especially looking for projects focused on the use of Artificial Intelligence. The five nominated projects are presented annually at DOK.forum during the festival in May.
