DOK Short'n'Sweet

DOK Short’n’Sweet is a short film pitch focusing on the financing and distribution of short documentary and animated films. After its successful kick-off in 2017, we are looking forward to this year again bringing together short film professionals and creative new ideas.


DOK Short’n’Sweet invites 10 film professionals to pitch their short film project in front of a panel of buyers and distributors as well as an interested audience of producers and peers. No prizes, no promises, but great opportunities if done right!

Each filmmaker selected for the pitch will have 7 minutes to present their project: 3 minutes to pitch the idea and 4 minutes to answer questions from the panelists.
