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.
DOK.focus lasting memories
The focus section DOK.focus lasting memories deals with contemporary witnesses of National Socialism and how subsequent generations dealt with their legacy.
From alternative rock to fado and Balkan beats to the search for the tangibility of sounds: DOK.music, as a new section, provides music for eyes and ears. Presented by ARTE

DOK.special40 years AG DOK
A small circle of documentary filmmakers joined together in 1980 with the aim of creating a lively documentary film culture in Germany. 40 years later, AG DOK is a professional association of more than 900 filmmakers and is also the largest film association in Germany. DOK.fest München is celebrating this with an anniversary programme: four selected documentary films by AG DOK members shed light on important socio-political issues of their respective times and thus exemplify four decades of a lively documentary film culture in Germany.
