Every two years the innovative European film scene meets in Neubrandenburg. Documentaries, animation and feature films are shown, which in different ways deal with the topic "future": How do we want to live - today and in the coming decades - here and elsewhere? We show films that deal with processes of change in reality and let us look into personal, touching and humorous individual life realities. 

In addition to the European competition, dokumentART- films & future offers a forum for Eastern European film. The aim is to promote encounters between young Eastern and Western European film talents in a politically enlarged Europe. Each year, a European film school also presents itself in the festival's international programme. In addition, specials, retrospectives and regionally oriented offers complement the international programme.

The next submission deadline starts here in December 2020:


We are already looking forward to exciting films and another edition of dokumentART in 2021!
