dokumentART – films & future
Innovative filmmakers from all over Europe meet up in Neubrandenburg every year in autumn. Documentaries, animations and experimental films tackle under a bigger scope the topic "future" and deal with changing realities. They test and transcend the boundaries of their genre in an exciting frontier between tradition and avant-garde.We especially welcome entries from young filmmakers who have not yet established themselves.
As well as our European competition, dokumenART also offers a special forum for Eastern European films. The aim here is to promote encounters between young filmmakers from Eastern and Western Europe within the expanded continent. Every year a different European film school will introduce itself as part of the festival's international program. Our program is further supplemented by specials, setrospectives and regional features.
Program commission, juries, awards
The selection of the competition program is curated by an independent commission. An independent international jury of film professionals as well as a student jury select the winning films. The awards have an added value of 10.000 euros.
