DOK LEIPZIG is one of the world's leading festivals for documentary and animation films, unique in combining these two disciplines in its festival history of more than 60 years. Every year at the end of October, the festival attracts more than 47,000 viewers and presents more than 300 films from all over the globe. DOK Leipzig has become an important platform for directors to present their films to a public audience for the first time (2018: 61 world and 31 international premieres) and the international film industry meets DOK Industry Programme to develop, promote and distribute new films and interactive projects. The 62nd edition of DOK Leipzig took place from 28th October to 3th November 2019. DOK Leipzig on Twitter: on Instagram: DOK Industry on Facebook:
