Award ceremony VFF Documentary Production Prize and FairFilmAward Non-Fiction
This year again, two prizes will be awarded to documentary film producers at DOK.fest München: The FairFilmAward Non-Fiction, which is presented in cooperation with Crew United and with the support of numerous industry associations, honours a production with particularly fair working conditions. The VFF Documentary Film Production Award, endowed with €7,500, honours an producer who has rendered outstanding services to documentary film production.
The second VFF Documentary Film Production Award goes to Fabian Driehorst of Fabian&Fred for the production BOY OF WAR. The film will be shown during the award ceremony.
The FairFilmAward Non-Fiction is a prize that is supposed to abolish itself. In the field of documentary film, it is certainly a much more difficult and protracted approach than in fiction. But one thing is all the more urgent: the lowest (self-)exploitation limit has been reached and non-fictional films are created under conditions that endanger quality and existence at the same time.
The nominees for the FairFilmAward Non-Fiction are:
Tickets are available in advance here in advance and at the box office.

BOY OF WAR
18-year old Artiom feels a calling: he must go into battle – for his “mother,” Ukraine. He will save her, he thinks. With childlike naivety he treks through forests and ruins, his gun at the ready playing war and practicing for war - until the harsh reality catches up with him.
