dokumentART Festival is a competitive event and focuses on documentary films by European filmmakers. The main Competition is supplemented by a closer look at the documentary film of Eastern Europe. Besides the competitive programme, dokumentART also offers workshops, lectures and special screenings. Innovative documentary film makers from all over Europe meet up in Neubrandenburg every year. They show films which deal with changing realities; films which test and even transcend the boundaries of their genre in the exciting frontier region between tradition and avantgarde. We especially welcome entries from young filmmakers who have not yet established themselves. Every year a different European film school will introduce itself as part of the festival’s international programme.
