Young journalists, filmmakers, games designers and producers (up to the age of 35) from German-speaking countries are invited to submit their projects by 3rd February 2020.

The co-production and ideas market of DOK.fest München is now looking for outstanding projects from German-speaking countries. Any documentary format at any stage of development is welcome. In the coming edition (7th to 10th May 2020), the about 30 best concepts will meet strong and committed partners from the fields of editing, production, promotion and sales at moderated roundtable sessions, one-to-one meetings and pitching competitions. For the Master's Pitch, ideas with the greatest potential for international co-productions are in demand.

For the endowed German Composition Award, donated by Sonoton Music, film composition concepts in particular are sought, for the British Pathé Archive Award projects with a relevant share of archive material, and for the Marketplace Screenings films in the rough cut stadium. All students at our partner universities have the opportunity to submit their current projects for the Pitch Award of Haus des Dokumentarfilms.
