DOKKINO is an documentary film event and a national film tour for schools organised annually by DocPoint Film Events



Experiences of feeling different are something almost everyone goes through when growing up. It is important to feel and be accepted exactly as you are, but sometimes that is easier said than done. Family and friends can offer a great help and give the security needed to take the next step on this important journey. Identity is something that takes time to form, and it can take all the way into adulthood to find your own place and voice. Once you’ve found your identity, it is easier to face the world and fulfill your dreams.

The DOKKINO 2023 theme Perfectly Unique raises questions of identity and individuality on a wide spectrum from diversity to disability. The topics of the films range from bullying, loneliness and isolation to equality and social media. The DOKKINO films of 2023 give voice to children and young people who wish to have their voices heard and to make an impact in the world.


DOKKINO is organised by DocPoint Film Events, a national documentary film organisation. DOKKINO film screenings are aimed at schools and are organised in cooperations with municipalities.

The films screened at DOKKINO are creative short documentaries for young audiences, assembled in screenings around an annually changing theme. Each year, screenings are held for primary schools (grades 4-6) and secondary schools (grades 7-9). The films are shown with subtitles in Finnish and Swedish, and educational materials are made available for the films.

DOKKINO provides a unique way to explore documentary film, DOKKINO supports shools’ curriculum content as well as cultural education, and even inspires young people to make their own films.
