DOK Leipzig has announced the full competition programme for its 65th edition, running from 17-23 October. Seventy-four feature-length and short animated and documentary films, 48 of which are world or international premieres, will be competing for the Golden and Silver Doves in the International Competitions, the German Competitions and the Competitions for the Audience Awards.

“The films at this year’s festival confront us with genuine social realities, but they also teach us that documentary images must be approached with scepticism,” says festival director Christoph Terhechte. “At a time when deepfakes are circulating online, DOK Leipzig regards itself as a platform that enables a critical discussion of the way images are being created and the forms of truth that are resulting from this.”
