I want to submit a film. What are the criteria for films?

You are welcome to submit artistic documentaries and animated films of all lengths as well as hybrid films between the two genres. 

To be considered for the competition sections, it is important that the production year of your film is either 2020 or 2021. In addition, your film should not have been shown publicly before October 2020 and it needs to celebrate at least a German premiere at DOK Leipzig. 

There is a submission fee for all films, but films from specific production countries are exempt from the fee (this happens automatically in the submission form). You find a list of these countries in our submission regulations.

If your film was made as part of your education or studies, it can also be exempted from the submission fee. Simply have your education or study certificate ready when you fill out the submission form in our myDOK section.
