The documentary film festival dokumentarfilmwoche hamburg has been going strong for nearly two decades. Every year the festival screens dozens of documentary films. Curators select compelling and artistically compelling work on a variety of topics, but generally audiences can expect a strong focus on political and social topics.
Metropolis, Lichtmess, B-Movie, and Gängeviertel cinemas host the five-day event, and generally screen films in their original language. If indicated as 'OmeU', non-English language films have English subtitles.
