Award Ceremony DOK.edit Award – presented by Adobe

At München, the editing award, endowed with 5,000 euros, will be awarded the third time.


It has been true for a long time that the finished film is made at the editing table. Even though the work processes are now digitalised, editing remains one of the most central and critical phases in the making of any documentary film. To highlight the importance of editing in documentary film, an editing award will be presented for the third time at DOK.fest München 2023 with the DOK.edit Award – presented by Adobe

The award was developed in cooperation with Adobe, who are also the sponsors of the 5,000 euros award. Its aim is to shed light on the post-production of documentary films and to honour the work of editors. Films with outstanding editing work are nominated. The prize is awarded across all series.

The nominated films will be presented at the festival with extended Q&As with the DOK.edit jury and the respective editor(s).

We will present the winning film.
