DOK.­Incubator 2013 Call

The first films finished after having participated in the 2012 edition of the DOK.Incubator training programme started their road to success at DOK Leipzig and CPH:DOX and have since moved on to IDFA, the Sundance Film Festival or the Documentary Fortnight of the Museum of Modern Art, NY. After six months of hard work on editing and distribution, all eight participating projects have gained international recognition. Five of them are discussing or have already signed contracts with key European sales agents.

DOK.Incubator provides individual tutoring by top European editors, producers, and sales agents for documentary projects from the rough cut stage to its release. In sharpening the editing and preparing a sophisticated international film release and a precise distribution strategy, the participants win the opportunity to let their films be screened, sold, and recognized worldwide.

  • Are you editing a documentary project and aiming for worldwide distribution without artistic compromises?
  • Do you want to find the strongest and the most interesting way how to tell your story?
  • Are you planning the international release of your film, trying to succeed at renowned documentary festivals?
  • Are you interested in new distribution tools (online platforms, social networks, new media) and are you aiming for a crowd-funding campaign?


If you have a rough cut ready by the beginning of May 2013 (and plan the premiere in autumn ‘13) 
don´t hesitate to meet us at Berlinale (February 8th – 12th) 
or submit directly online:     




Deadline for observers (participants without a project who attend the whole workshop programme and meet with lecturers individually): March 30th, 2013
