DOKer

Moscow International Documentary Film Festival DOKer

About

DOKer was created in 2011 to bring wonderful independent documentary films from all over the world to the Russian audience and provide a discussion platform for authors, experts and spectators. 

The principles of DOKer are: 

  • When we say 'documentary film' we put the emphasis on ‘film'. 
  • There are countless ways to make a documentary but we believe it has to be dramatic and interesting. 
  • Image and sound are as important for docs as they are for fiction films. The film language is universal, and we use it to tell our stories.
