DOK Co-Pro Market
Due to the ongoing public health crisis COVID-19 and its impact on the audiovisual industry, the DOK Co-Pro Market will be an online offering in 2020. Although we’d much rather meet you in Leipzig in person, we are excited to match projects with potential international partners and present exciting, up-to-date sessions in the Open Programme.
36 projects in development or early stages of production will meet online on 26 & 27 October 2020 to meet potential co-producers, co-financiers, broadcasters, funds, distributors and sales representatives. The goal is to expand networks, create fruitful opportunities to finance new creative documentaries and face head on the radical challenges that have presented themselves this year.
