Film submissions: 16. dokumentarfilmwoche hamburg (April 3rd to 7th 2019)

The dokumentarfilmwoche hamburg is organised as a collective. For the 16th edition we will respond to the huge increase in submissions we have experienced, and to which we cannot do justice, through a system of pre-selection.

If you would like to submit a film/video for the 16. dokumentarfilmwoche hamburg 2019, we ask you to send a SHORT SUMMARY (no entry form required, one A-4 page including technical details such as original format, running time, screening format, etc.) by e-mail to (deadline: 10 December 2018) If you have not received a request for a screening copy within three weeks of submitting the short summary, we are afraid the film was not selected for further review.

If the film was selected for further review you will receive an invitation to allow us to view it (deadline for requested screening links: December 31, 2018).

We ask for your understanding that you will only be contacted by us in case of a positive decision.


Important Notice:

If the film has a Hamburg connection, please use this form for the Hamburg connection with reference to, for example, film production, director, location, film funding.
We place great importance on the attendance of the filmmakers at the screenings during the dokumentarfilmwoche hamburg between Wednesday, 3. April, to Sunday, 7. April 2019.
