Autumn is coming and the documentary festival season opens. The festivals start to announce their programmes. DOKLeipzig is one of the bigger – this blogger will be there to report and be in a jury – that at this time is finishing the selection process, to be published later. This is an edit of their press release of today, impressive it looks, also the amount of money waiting to be passed on to awarded filmmakers on the October 23rd when the festival is over:
The 53rd International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film takes place from 18 to 24 October 2010 in Leipzig. Cash prizes totalling 71,000 euros (!) will be awarded in various competition categories. Special highlights include a special programme of films from the Caucasus, a selection of films on the subject of money (Money Matters), a retrospective from the German Federal Film Archive on the military in German society (Regime and Regiment), a series dedicated to the animated film-maker from New York Signe Baumane and an hommage to German director Klaus Wildenhahn.
DOK Leipzig is also a marketplace. It offers international industry professionals master classes and DOK podium discussions on such subjects as cross media, sales, marketing, film criticism and the future of film subsidies and grants in Germany. It has an impressive (my comment after the two last years) digital DOK market, a co-production encounter, screenings of new German documentary films, DOK Summits and a Forum for Innovative television, which focuses on strategies for international broadcast stations in the age of cross media. On 23 and 24 October the final presentation of the Documentary Campus Master School will take place under the auspices of the festival.
