About the Competition

Every man carries within himself a whole world, reads an old proverb. This year’s documentary competition introduces to its audiences 14 worlds and worldviews, carefully selected from 700 documentary entries from 130 countries.

The directors from all continents take their viewers on expeditions to Myanmar, Russia and Australia. They cross the African desert, enter the metropolitan Moloch, and portray refugees serving as scapegoats. But they also talk of love in all its facets: love for a partner, sports or a specific car. Their stories are touching, tragic, and awkward, ranging from animation to 3D film, and at times either poetic, brutally honest or hilariously funny.
