Spot the most exciting, fresh films seeking gap financing, distribution partners and festival premieres. DOK Preview Training shines a light on one outstanding project from each partner initiative – recognising the catalysing effect of these career-enhancing programmes and industry events. A refresher workshop ahead of the showcase preps the teams for an inspiring presentation and lively conversation with the moderators.

Each project shows exciting ambition and beautiful cinematic handwriting. We are happy to share the film projects and kickstart their successful release. Get a taste of what is to come!

DOK Preview Training 2023 was realised in collaboration with DocMontevideo, Docs by the Sea, Docu Rough Cut Boutique, dok.incubator, ESoDoc, EURODOC, Ex Oriente and EFM Doc Toolbox Programme.
