DOK.forum Perspectives

A platform for the discussion of media-political, technical and narrative trends

With Re:arraning Reality - Postproduction in Documentary Film, we will again focus on the work of editors in 2022. In our events on Media Policy, we will discuss the demands of new players in the documentary market and the question of how more diversity in documentary film is possible. With our Workshops and Consultancies on participatory approaches in documentary film, a filmmakers' talk in the Open Editing Room and safety measures in relation to reporting from conflict areas, we have valuable training offers in our programme this year. The DOK.digital Award and exciting panels on "Radicalisation and the Media - Working with Journalism against Conspiracy Theories", among others, form the focus on New Media
