DOK.fest München has developed into one of Europe's largest documentary film festivals. Every year in May the festival presents the most interesting and relevant international documentaries on a big screen. DOK.fest München accompanies the filmographies of outstanding filmmakers, supports directors from so-called "low produc­tion countries", works on a widespread impact of artistic documentary films, and initiates sustainable relationships between established filmmakers and newcomers.
