Indigenous culture and megacities, monarchy and liberalism – seven documentaries from and about Canada. The series is part of Canada's cultural programme as Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2020/21, supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, Telefilm Canada and the Government of Canada.
Slices of life, insights and perspectives: The films of the International Competition open doors to new worlds for us. They compete for the VIKTOR Main Competition, which is endowed with 10,000 euros. The prize sponsors are Bayerischer Rundfunk and Story House Productions, a company of the Bavaria Film Group.
The DOK.deutsch competition presents films that deal with people and events in the German-speaking region. In in-depth narratives we are exposed to extraordinary experiences and gain valuable insights. The VIKTOR DOK.deutsch is endowed with 5,000 euros.
The Student Award of DOK.fest München presents outstanding documentary films by students of German-speaking film schools. The films are nominated for the Megaherz Student Award, worth 3,000 Euros.
DOK.panorama shows innovative documentary films from all over the world mapping the diversity and current trends of documentary storytelling.
Munich is the home of the filmmakers whose works are gathered together in the Munich premieres. But time and again, the view extends far beyond the city limits.
The DOK.special series is characterised by films on current events and topics. We present our programme together with Munich institutions from culture, society and media.
