The Kassel Dokfest invites all filmmakers, artists, distributors, producers, gallerists, universities, and institutions to submit their most current works and projects to the 38th Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival. The entire film program as well as the works for the exhibition Monitoring will be selected from all submissions. All installations of the exhibition Monitoring compete for the Golden Cube. A jury nominates films from the program for the other festival awards. The Kassel Dokfest does not charge an entry fee and pays – as far as possible – a screening fee for the films of the regular film program.
This year, Kassel Dokfest is being planned as a hybrid form. Film programs and talks will be presented on-site from November 16–21 (provided Corona regulations allow it) and online on our VoD-platform until November 26. Online films will be geo-blocked and will be available with a limited number of accesses, for a limited time, and with copy protection. Filmmakers are free to decide against an online presentation.

WHERE AND HOW CAN I SUBMIT A WORK?
Works have to be submitted with a streaming link unlimited in time which is also downloadable (do not use Wetransfer or Dropbox). Stills have to be uploaded online as well.
