With accreditation only!

After half a year of training, consultation and intensive work we are happy and proud to present the results of the first DOK.Incubator training programme. By showing trailers or short excerpts of their brand new films, the eight directors and producers coming from all over of Europe will give industry professionals and potential partners the opportunity to discover these exiting new documentaries which are in post-production or have just been finished.

These eight poetic, artistic, funny, radical or very intimate films invite you to endangered paradises and distant valleys where people fight against global corporations. They allow you to dive into the lives of young dancers or survivors of forced emigration and guide you to the holdout of the last Black Sea pirates. You will be able to discover touching stories about justice, identity, love and hope before they have their world premier.

The session is held in English.
