The DOK.fest Friends – foster film culture and get involved

Documentary film is the art of the hour. Equally empathic and cineastic, documentary film tells stories about people and their living worlds. Its personal approach and authenticity make current non-fictional cinema one of the artistically most diverse and relevant.

Being one of the biggest film festivals in Europe, DOK.fest München celebrates international documentary film on the screen all year long. Together with your help the newly established DOK.fest Friends wants to provide non-fictional film culture with a powerful lobby.
