The International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film DOK Leipzig has announced the full programme for its 63rd edition, set to run in Leipzig cinemas and online from 26 October-1 November.

“The international competitions of DOK Leipzig focus on the fruitful encounter between young people who are eager to experiment and those who have remained true to the curiosity and creativity they started out with,” says Terhechte. “For the first time, therefore, the international jury in the competition for long films will award not only a Golden Dove, but also a Silver Dove, which is explicitly intended for the best film by an up-and-coming director.”

The newly established Camera Lucida section will present five challenging films out of competition, "bringing together captivating documentaries that challenge the conventions of cinema and confront reality in a particularly lucid way”, as Terhechte puts it.

The selection includes Avalon by Thai filmmaker Thunska Pansittivorakul (Santikhiri Sonata [+lire aussi :
