DOK Industry

DOK Industry is our platform for international documentary and animation film professionals. Our employees connect filmmakers, production companies, TV stations, VoD platforms, distributors and sales agents. They also organise events where industry players can discuss their latest film projects, find financing or distribution channels, and learn about current trends.

For our DOK Industry department we are looking for:

Ein Mann und eine Frau, beide Anfang 20, lehnen nebeneinander auf dem Tresen eines DOK Infostands. Beide tragen DOK Pullover. Sie lächeln sich an. Die Frau hält ein DOK Programmheft in der Hand, vor ihnen sind mehrere Broschüren und Flyer ausgelegt.

Every year, motivated volunteers support us during and around the festival week. It’s an opportunity for film lovers to gain accreditation, peek behind the scenes, meet our filmmakers, answer audience questions and immerse themselves in the festival. The commitment of our many volunteers is part of why DOK Leipzig is known for its welcoming atmosphere and professionalism.

We are looking for volunteers in almost every area of the festival, for the timeframe 14/10 – 23/10/2022

Calls for applications will be posted in August.
