Documentary is bigger
than a document
DOKer doesn’t receive funding from the state or any corporations. Festival budgeting consists of ticket sales, sponsorship contracts and personal funds of the organizers
Annually DOKer receives more than 2,000 applications from around the world. We have participants not just from Europe and North America, but many filmmakers from lesser-known Asian, African, South American and Oceanian also take part in the festival.
DOKer is the only Documentary Film Festival in Russia where the professional jury evaluates separately the work of the director, the cinematographer, the sound director and the film editor
