Leipzig International Festival for Documentary and Animated Film



The International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film - DOK Leipzig - is the largest German and one of the leading international festivals for artistic documentary and animated films.
It was founded in 1955 by the 'club of film-makers of the German Democratic Republic' (Club der Filmschaffenden der DDR) under the title All-German Leipzig Week for Cultural and Documentary Film, as the first independent film festival of the GDR. During the Cold War, the festival was a unique place of encounter and exchange for film-makers from East and West. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Leipzig Festival has developed into one of the most dynamic festivals for documentary and animated film, providing a high-quality programme and - since 2004 - additional industry offers.
