When 14 youngsters from different schools in Leipzig look behind the scenes of the DOK Festival, then it must be the DOK Spotters. The former spokesman of the Festival Dr. Christoph Peters coached a lot of students at the University of Leipzig in journalism. Then he had the idea to give young people the opportunity to make their first experiences as journalists on the film festival.
Together with Carolin Ziemann, who is responsible for all the education programs of DOK Leipzig, he founded the DOK Spotters. With the help of experienced journalists and coaches the pupils do interviews, produce radio features and video reports on DOK Leipzig and write articles for the local newspaper as well as for online media.
