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.

DOK.guest Turkey

Our guest country series this year looks east to Turkey: a country marked by ambivalences between tradition and modernity, secularism and religiosity. In four films, we examine various facets of life in Turkey and get to know five personalities who are tackling the pressing challenges of the country's current reality.


This year's DOK.focus series POWER OF MEDIA? deals with the contradictory and at the same time decisive role our media play in today's world in five selected films.

Homage Nikolaus Geyrhalter

His unmistakable signature – visually powerful, epic, opulent-hypnotic – leaves a lasting impression. The autodidact, whose works are always a deep bow to the documentary, is always concerned in his films with more than the purely mental experience. The homage to Nikolaus Geyrhalter presents six films from four decades of his artistic work.
