DOK.FEST München preview


In May the waiting will be over. The Munich International Documentary Film Festival will be celebrating its 25th anniversary!
From 5th - 12th May 2010, the festival's new Directors, Christian Pfeil and Daniel Sponsel, invite you to view the most significant of contemporary documentaries and meet and celebrate with filmmakers from all over the world.


At the heart of DOK.fest is, as always, the International Competition, from which an esteemed Jury will select the best film.
For the first time this year there will also be a German-speaking Competition.
In total, DOK.fest will be screening around 70 films in various sections, including many German and world premieres. 

You will find an overview of the sections here.



The entire programme and information on the films being screened
at the 25th DOK.fest will be available from the middle of April here.


A few advance highlights:

  • DOK.fest's Guest of Honour, Volker Koepp, will present, in person, a retrospective of his work.
  • Peter Lichti, whose film THE SOUND OF INSECTS (European Film Prize, 2010) is being screened in the DOK.specials section, will be President of the 2010 International Jury.
  • This year, the new section, DOK.guest, features the African continent. Many celebrated directors from several African countries will be our guests in Munich, along with their films. Notable European filmmakers will also be showing their recent work from the region. In addition, there will be a panel in the Museum of Ethnology on the theme of "Africa in the Media", with guests including Eberhard Piltz and Jean-Marie Teno, a prominent director from Cameroon. Teno, whose film SACRED PLACES is being screened in the DOK.guest programme, will also be a member of the International Jury.
  • The section is also new this year with the motto "I want to know how the images work on me". In the mornings we will be showing two films for school classes, followed by discussions with filmmakers led by media education specialists.



Professional guests are invited to register for accreditation between now
and Friday 23rd April here.

Accreditation before 23rd April costs only 50 Euro (25 Euro for film students and directors of films submitted to the festival in 2010). After the deadline the accreditation fee rises to 60 Euro (30 Euro for film students). Your accreditation will be available to collect from 4th May from the Festival Centre.
