About DOK.Incubator



DOK.Incubator is a training initiative which aims at fostering the European non-fiction industry by enhancing the quality of creative documentaries and supporting their distribution including the use of new media. Directors and producers with a documentary in post-production get inspirational input for their rough cut as well as fresh ideas for the international release and creative distribution and marketing strategies of their film.

The DOK.Incubator helps producers to improve their skills when in post-production and helps them to get the best out of their documentary. It supports them to fully discover the potential in their films, to further develop, sharpen and focus the storytelling and dramaturgy and inspires them regarding inventive and creative ways of marketing and distribution.


The main aims of DOK.Incubator are to:

- help producers to get the best possible cut of their film which has the potential to attract an international audience, a multi-layered film with a strong storyline and convincing character development.
- help them to develop a marketing and distribution strategy that is tailor-made for the concrete project, its topic and target audience.
- give the projects concrete support in accessing the international market by networking and reaching key decision makers and by helping them to raise money even in this late stage of production (pre-sales, crowd funding etc.)

The half-year training programme consists of three workshops and is open to European producers with a promising international project. You can join the workshops either as a regular participant or as an observer.
