DOK Co-Pro Market

The DOK Co-Pro Market is one of the finest networking events for producers with creative documentary projects in development. 35 projects are selected from all over the globe to participate in more than 800 meetings over two days (29 and 30 October 2018).

The DOK Co-Pro Market pays special attention to creative producers, who we believe to be the backbone of the audiovisual market. It is a meeting place for like-minded professionals looking to build sustainable, international and entrepreneurial partnerships.

Every year we also welcome over 80 commissioning editors, film and culture funds, distributors and other partners to co-finance new films and participate in inspiring side-bar programming. This programming is also open to delegations from Europe and abroad.




35 film projects have been selected out of 270 submissions for the 14th DOK Co-Pro Market. Discover the 2018 Co-Pro Market projects


The final selection of this year's participants was done with the kind help of the Luxembourgish producer Marion Guth (a_BAHN, Germany) and Georg Gruber (Magnetfilm, Germany). Read more about this year's Co-Pro Selection Committee
