For the second time, a Silver Dove donated by the joint program 3sat will go to a young director at the International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film. The Silver Dove in the “International Long Documentary and Animated Film Competition” 2021 was won by Karol Pałka for the film “Bucolic”. With the young talent award at DOK Leipzig, endowed with 6,000 euros, 3sat is reaffirming its commitment to international directorial talent. The award is given to a production that is no more than the third directorial work after completing the training.

“The documentary film is an essential part of our 3sat program. The promotion of the next generation of filmmakers is particularly important to us. On behalf of the 3sat partners, I warmly congratulate Karol Pałka on winning the Silver Dove,” said 3sat coordinator Natalie Müller-Elmau on the occasion of the award ceremony in Leipzig.

The jury’s reasoning stated: “Deeply impressed by the director’s fresh and innovative approach, we would particularly like to emphasize the sensitive portrayal of the characters in this film. He moves effortlessly and with extreme delicacy and restraint through a magical world.”

This year’s jury for the “International Long Documentary and Animated Film Competition” includes Grit Lemke (Germany), Anocha Suwichakornpong (Thailand), Alex Szalat (France), Katarína Tomková (Slovakia) and Raed Yassin (Lebanon / Germany).
