DOK.network Africa @home

In its eighth year, the festival's Africa focus promotes the perception and representation of the African continent beyond short-lived headlines and stereotypes. In addition to the presentation of African documentary films in Munich, cultural exchange with screenings of DOK.fest highlights at our partner festivals and the promotion of young African filmmakers are also part of the core programme of this project, unique in Germany.

This year we presented three films and one discussion at the Africa Day as part of DOK.fest München 2021 @home.
