The association Internationales Dokumentarfilmfestival München e.V. organizes the International Documentary Film Festival Munich, together with the association Filmstadt München e.V. DOK.fest is a non-profit organisation. The aim is to promote documentary art in cinema and to further extend the International Documentary Film Festival Munich.


Activities of the association

The association accompanies the development of DOK.fest with ideas and impulses – like the introduction of the sections and DOK.tour –, with admiration and great sympathy, with critical observation and constructive actions.

The VIKTOR award statue – created by Johannes Brunner – emphasizes the value of the three main awards – sponsored by Bayerischer Rundfunk and Global Screen, SPIEGEL GESCHICHTE and Petra-Kelly-Stiftung. The VIKTOR originated in the initiative of members of the association and symbolizes the strong, authentic and artistic documentary film. For all award winners it serves as a special reminder of the festival.
