DOK.forum Perspectives 2019

The DOK.forum Perspectives offer a platform for dealing with media policy, aesthetic and technical questions.

In case studies, top-class panels, workshops or workshop discussions we discuss challenges in the industry and question narrative trends and the effects of technical innovations on the practice of filmmakers and the perception of the public.

We see ourselves as an interface between the industry and the festival audience and invite all interested parties to get to know the work of renowned or up-and-coming filmmakers and to exchange views on new trends in documentary film.
