This gives us hope for next year, when we are already very much looking forward to welcoming you back to Munich!

For now, we are thrilled about a successful @home edition with 3,101 online visitors, 211 industry experts at a total of 58 online events.

Six endowed industry awards as well as further mentoring and festival prizes: 2021 @home focused the core themes of documentary filmmaking.

Best of Perspectives @home


Tracking long-term trends: In four programme sections, this year's events offered space for the debate of central issues for the industry.

We had a close look at the interactive development of documentary formats and new technical solutions in our New Media programme section. The new section Re:arranging Reality – Postproduction in Documentary Film focused on strategies of image design and thus took up an explosive topic of current discussion. The talks with the editors nominated for the DOK.edit Award – presented by Adobe took us to the NOW of documentary film editing. And for the first time, online Workshops & Consultancies rounded off the digital offerings.

From the great response to our Media Policy panels, we could see that our offer once again took up highly sensitive issues: We will stay tuned and continue to offer you a reliable forum.
