Honorary Award

Since 2001, the Kassel Video and Documentary Film Festival has been awarding prizes, which usually focus on young artist’s talent. In addition to these awards, since 2015, the Kassel Dokfest is giving an Honorary Award to established directors and cultural workers, who have distinguished themselves by particularly innovative achievements in film and art, and are locals or connected to the Kassel Dokfest in a special way. The prize is donated by the Kassel based company Hübner GmbH & Co. KG and endowed with 3,000€.
