The film programme of the 39th DOK.fest München: In the cinema. At home.

1 to 12 May 2024 at the Munich venues
6 to 20 May 2024 @home

Like every year, DOK.fest München 2024 opens up a view of the world: with 109 of the best and most current international documentaries from 51 countries. Our aim is to ensure the greatest possible participation in our films, which is why we bring them to the big screen in Munich cinemas and cultural venues as well as to home screens throughout Germany as barrier-free as possible: DOK.fest München stays dual!

You can filter our film programme by section (competitions and programme series), country, keyword or film title on this page.

This year‘s festival has a special focus on the strongly divergent forces within European democracies. The DOK.focus DEMOCRAZY series features five films that offer an in-depth insight into five countries, from the highest state level to the social microcosm: in Hungary, Russia, Austria, Norway and Germany.

Homage Petra Lataster-Czisch and Peter Lataster

With five joint films and a masterclass, the homage of the 39th DOK.fest München is dedicated to the Dutch directing duo Petra Lataster-Czisch and Peter Lataster. Africa

Exchange at eye level. The festival's focus on Africa promotes the perception and representation of the African continent beyond short-lived headlines and stereotypes. The AFRICAN ENCOUNTERS focus on African documentaries and current film-aesthetics and social debates.
