The film programme of DOK.fest München. At the cinema. At home.
3 to 14 May 2023 at the Munich venues
8 to 21 May 2023 @home
As always, DOK.fest München opens the view out to the world: with 130 of the best and most current international documentaries from 55 countries. Our goal is the greatest possible participation in our films, which is why we bring them to the big screen in Munich cinemas as well as to home screens throughout Germany: DOK.fest stays dual.
Intense stories and the unusual on one's own doorstep: the competition presents films that deal with people and topics in German-speaking countries. The VIKTOR DOK.deutsch Competition is endowed with 7,500 euros. The prize sponsor is Sky.
AUF DER KIPPE (Germany 2023, Britt Beyer). Lusatia, the former centre of brown coal mining in the GDR, goes from one upheaval to the next.
EINZELTÄTER TEIL 1: MÜNCHEN (Germany 2023, Julian Vogel). The 2016 racist attack at Munich’s Olympia Shopping Centre changes the lives of the bereaved forever.
FACING TIME (Germany 2023, Annett Ilijew). Chronicler of the moment in the camera’s lens: Michael Ruetz and his iconic photography.
FEMINISM WTF (Austria 2023, Katharina Mueckstein). Everything that people need to know right now about feminism, gender diversity and sex!
FRAUEN IN LANDSCHAFTEN (Germany 2023, Sabine Michel). Petry, Schwesig, Magwas and Domscheit-Berg: four female politicians with their roots in the east on the reunification of Germany and the role of women.
FÜR IMMER – FOR EVER (Germany 2023, Pia Lenz). Together for 70 years: Eva and Dieter’s love story is far from the likes of Tinder & Co.
GRETAS GEBURT – GRETA'S BIRTH (Germany 2023, Katja Baumgarten). A child has died. The midwife is on trial. 59 days of hearings. Then the verdict.
JONNY ISLAND (Germany 2023, Petra Mäussnest). How serious are we about inclusion? A teacher struggles to participate in society.
PLAY WITH THE DEVIL – BECOMING ZEAL & ARDOR (Switzerland 2023, Olivier Joliat, Matthias Willi). A riotous music film about “slave chant metal,” playing, success, business and humour as an attitude.
RUÄCH – EINE REISE INS JENISCHE EUROPA – RUÄCH – A JOURNEY INTO YENISH EUROPE (Switzerland 2023, Andreas Müller, Simon Guy Fässler). The Yenish people: united by their inner freedom but also the deep wounds of the past.
WIR UND DAS TIER – EIN SCHLACHTHAUSMELODRAM – US AND THE ANIMAL – A SLAUGHTERHOUSE MELODRAMA (Germany 2023, David Spaeth). What is it like to live in our world and kill animals? People whose job it is, think this through.
