DOK.EDUCATION FILMWETTBEWERB PREISTRÄGER.INNEN-FILME 2022
As part of the 37th DOK.fest München, DOK.education and the main award donor BLLV e.V., the Bavarian Teachers' Association, are offering the 8th edition of the Documentary Film Award for Young People. The award goes to six films by young filmmakers who show individual perspectives on real life and are open to what is different from one's own.
For this year's Documentary Film Award for Young People, children, teenagers and young adults who go to school in Bavaria – from primary school to vocational high school – again were able to submit short films. This year, the jury, which again had a great line-up, reviewed all the films and selected the winners. Here you can see the six award-winning films. We wish you good projection!
Please note: the films are only available in German language and have no subtitles.
