Deutsches Historisches Museum Unter den Linden 2 10117 Berlin
DOKUARTS was founded in 2006 at the Berlin Academy of Arts upon the initiative of the festival director, Andreas Lewin. Since then, the festival has become in demand by filmmakers, producers and cultural institutions. As such, from 2008 to 2010 it was invited to the EYE Film Institute of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. José Carlos Avellar invited the festival to the Instituto Moreira Salles in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where it has been a regular guest with a part of its film selection since 2012. In the same year, DOKUARTS returned to Berlin and presented the festival’s first edition at its current venue, the Zeughauskino of the Deutsches Historisches Museum.
