The International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film (DOK Leipzig) is the largest German festival for artistic documentary and the oldest one in the world. It was founded in 1955 in the times of the Cold War and looks back on a rich history where filmmakers from east and west as well as from Latin America, Asia and Africa met and exchanged views.

From October 30 until November 6 2017, it takes place in several cinemas and locations in Leipzig. The programme is very varied, rich and international and is supposed to broaden your horizon and awaken your interest in the life of different people all around the globe.

This year’s festival centre will be the “Museum der bildenden Künste” Leipzig. Tickets are available there, in the festival cinemas and on the festival website. You can either buy single tickets for all films or festival season tickets.
