DOK Co-Pro Market


Submissions are now open for the 14th DOK Co-Pro Market!


The DOK Co-Pro Market will take place 29 & 30 October 2018. We schedule 800 curated individual meetings with possible co-producers, co-financiers, broadcasters and other professionals in order to finance new ambitious creative documentaries.

What we are looking for at a glance:


  • Particularly for feature-length documentaries for theatrical release, although animated documentaries (longer than 52 minutes), TV series or one-offs and interactive projects are also welcome to apply
  • Universal and extraordinary themes, stories and visual approach justifying the international co-financing
  • Projects should be in development or very early stages of production, have some visual materials to show and in the best case some financing already attached


Independent producers are invited to submit projects in development, suitable for international co-financing via the MYDOK area of the DOK Website.

The DOK Co-Pro Market is limited to up to 2 participants per project, and costs 350,00 € (ex VAT) for two.

Deadline: 1 August 2018
