DOK.edit Award Ceremony with film screening KIX

– presented by Adobe. At, the editing award, endowed with 5,000 euros, will be awarded the fourth time.

As part of the presentation of the DOK.edit Award – presented by Adobe, we show the award-winning film KIX (more information on the film below).

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 fourth time at DOK.fest München 2024 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.

“It might look like we’re just playing. But this is no game, it is dead serious.” Nobody suspects how much truth lies in Sanyi’s statement when Dávid Mikulán embarks on 10 years of filming the young man. From his cramped flat, where his whole family shares a bedroom and there is no room to breathe, Sanyi escapes to the streets of Budapest with his friends. Katharina Dolles



Bálint Révész is a young director and producer who straddles the line between documentary and fiction. He graduated from the University of Brighton in 2012. Together with Orban Wallace, he founded the London and Budapest-based production company Gallivant Film in 2015.

Dávid Mikulán studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest and has worked with Conceptual Sound Productions Budapest, the Kolibri Theater and the Hungarian State Opera, among others. His multidisciplinary works reflect on how public spaces affect social structures.
