Festival info

DocPoint - Helsinki Documentary Film Festival takes place annually in January in Helsinki, Finland and in Tallinn, Estonia. In 2015 DocPoint is organised the 14th time.

Founded in 2001, DocPoint Helsinki is one of the largest documentary film festivals in the Nordic countries. In Finland, it is the only festival solely dedicated to documentary films. DocPoint expanded to Tallinn in 2010, which makes DocPoint the world's only festival happening in two countries at the same time.

The aim of DocPoint is to give the people an opportunity to see some of the most talked-about documentary films of the past year. It is also a prestigious venue for Finnish documentary film. DocPoint's New Finnish Documentary Films Selection includes annually some of the most anticipated premieres of the year.

In addition to film screenings, DocPoint includes also seminars, lectures, clubs and a Masterclass. A Documentary Film Event for Children and Youth called DOKKINO has also been an essential part of DocPoint since the beginning of the festival.

The 13th DocPoint took place on 28th Jan - 2nd Feb 2014. 28 000 visitors participated in the festival screenings and side events. In total, 136 documentary works were shown in 155 screenings, almost 30 of the latter being sold out.

The next edition of DocPoint will take place in Helsinki and Tallinn on 27th Jan - 1st Feb 2015.
