dokumentART – films & future
Every year innovative filmmakers from all over Europe meet up in Neubrandenburg for a five-days program with documentaries, fiction and animated films. The films tackle the topic "future" under a bigger scope and deal with changing realities. They test and transcend the boundaries of their genre in exciting frontier region between tradition and avant-garde. We warmly welcome entries from professional filmmakers and film students.
Every year a different European film school will introduce itself as part of the festival's international program. As well as our European program, dokumenART also offers a special forum for Eastern European films. The aim of this forum is to promote encounters between filmmakers from Eastern and Western Europe within the newly expanded Europe. Our international program is further supplemented by specials, retrospectives and regional features.
