Fields of activity at DOK.fest 2022

DOK.fest München is one of the largest documentary film festivals in Europe with a focus on long, creative and international documentary films. We show around 120 films from over 40 countries and host filmmakers from all over the world. In 2022 we will celebrate our 37th edition.
As a motivated documentary film and festival enthusiast, you now have the chance to look behind the scenes of DOK.fest Munich and actively participate!
Normally, we show our film programme at various venues in the centre of Munich. Since 2020, however, we have also been coming to your living room as DOK.fest Munich @home. After a two-year break, however, we are particularly pleased to be able to play in our partner cinemas again and at the same time come to our audience at home., the festival's industry platform, will also take place during the festival. To make it all happen, we need you!
