Grand Jury Documentary

For the fourth time, we will present the Grand Jury Documentary Award in 2024. Eight documentaries will be selected from the festival’s full film programme. These are films where cinematography and content go hand in hand. An international jury will declare the winner of €5,000.

The Grand Jury Documentary Award is made possible by HUMAN.
