IDFA, CPH:DOX, DOK Leipzig, MoMA Documentary Fortnight, True / False Festival, Visions du Réel Nyon, Hot Docs, Documentary Edge Auckland, and –  most brilliant – the Best Directing Award at SUNDACE 2013, these are the trophies of the films, edited and developed within last year edition.

DOK.Incubator accepts only eight feature documentary projects in the rough cut stage to work with them individually for six months on the strongest dramaturgy of the final cut and a clever distribution and marketing strategy. The initiative has just announced this year selection results:
