DOK Preview Germany is a showcase for 7 German productions (feature-length documentaries) that will be in their final stages of development and present themselves to international buyers, editors, world sales, festival curators and distributors.

Each film has a unique style, and Preview Germany's wonderful moderators, Julia Teichmann and Tanja Georgieva-Waldhauer, together with the film teams, gave you a sneak peek into new titles ready for your slates, slots and festivals. The filmmakers and producers were on hand ready to discuss their distribution strategies.

With the project presentation and subsequent opportunity for networking and exchange, we want to support the selected projects on their journey to international distribution and create new working ties.
