Germany’s DOK Leipzig film festival has unveiled the line-up for its 2020 edition, which will run as a hybrid event from October 26-November 1.
World premieres in the International competition include Children, from Israeli veteran Ada Ushpiz and Shelly Silver’s Girls/Museum.
The new Camera Lucida section, showcasing five unconventional films not in competition, includes the world premiere of Lamentations Of Judas from award-winning Dutch director Boris Gerrets, who died earlier this year.
This year’s hybrid event will include cinema screenings for the Leipzig audience, with a large part of the programme shown online throughout Germany. Accredited guests are able to view festival films online worldwide.
Films in the international long documentary and animation film competition will compete for the Golden Dove which comes with a €10,000 prize, and the Silver Dove for which the winner will receive €6,000.
