The festival


Duka & Proxy ACT - 3 day camping film festival.

Gather at the Castle Schönow in Brandenburg, Germany. A program for a new awakening.


This is an ACT to come together using films to trigger a change in our individual self, in the community and to support the life of our planet Earth and our entire living organism. We will gather every morning in a circle to share the words and ideas that arise from the films and workshops. We will weave our thoughts together using films as medicine. We gather as an artistic ACT that will remain within ourselves to serve a transformation for the new humanity that we already are.

-Cacao Ceremony

DUKA is a film collective based in Berlin, that promotes authenticity of creative acts pursuing aesthetic as a goal not only of what might be defined as parameter among conventional, unconventional or experimental, but also in the sense of “art brut”: spontaneous, autodidact and made also by those on the outside of the established art scene.

The name DUKA is an abbreviation for “Dunkelkammer” which in german means “Darkroom”. This is in order to remember us that we were analog, and everything which is an image nowadays it comes from Film, celluloid: a support a moment of reality could be saved on and revealed later through a chemical process. 

In times where everything is art nothing is art likewise, we need to orient ourselves developing much more than a simple product trying to concentrate on the path that brings us to approach to the process of creation.



The Neo-gothic castle built in 1840 was originally owned by the von Sydow Family and expropriated after the second world war to then serve as municipal office and for consumer purposes, Now after 20 years of abandonment it is again in use for shootings aswell as for private and communal events.

During this festival we want to create a common space where we really have time to talk about films and their process, get to know and learn from each other by sharing different approaches from different disciplines. And to have fun. Of course.

There is forest and the small Schönow village around in case you need a short break from it all and just let the warm Uckermark breeze run through your hair.
