New visitor record at the 32nd DOK.fest München

The 32nd International Documentary Film Festival Munich took place on several screens in various locations from 3rd to 14th May 2017. Also in this year, the prestigious audience festival celebrated a visitor record. Nearly 43.000 spectators watched 157 socially relevant and ingenious films from 45 countries, including 31 world premieres and 68 German premieres. Next to Leipzig, Amsterdam, Nyon and Yamagata, DOK.fest München is one of the largest and most recognized documentary festivals worldwide.

The BIG cinema festival experts were also present this year as a technical service provider. It is above all our task to create a resource-optimized and cost-efficient workflow 1 . Thanks to our well-developed DCP management, we were able to process a large number of incoming films and prepare them for use in the lighthouses.
In addition to our regular festival support, BIG cinema was again responsible for the technical realization of the opening ceremony at the Deutsches Theater in Munich. For a crisp picture experience on the screen we put on the highly modern projection technology from Christie.
