FEATURE-LENGTH PROJECTS in the development / early production stage are invited to the 16th edition of the East Doc Forum - the oldest and largest central pitch in the region. Almost 150 documentary films have been completed with the direct support of the East Doc Forum, including such international hits as Brothers, The Domino Effect, Blind Loves or Rabbit à la Berlin. The pitch is preceded by a 5-day preparatory workshop and followed by two days of feedback round tables and one-on-one meetings.
The East Doc Market offers the opportunity to meet with over 100 international funders, broadcasters, distributors, sales agents and festival representatives to FEATURE-LENGTH PROJECTS and SERIES in late production and post-production. Over the course of two days, more than 400 pre-booked one-on-one meetings take place.
Projects with innovative technologies used for an immersive, transmedia or interactive storytelling are invited to find partners at the East Doc Interactive. The roundtable pitch is an integral part of the Forum. The projects receive an immediate feedback on the spot and attend one-on-one meetings over the following days.
For the first time, SHORTS are invited to the East Doc Platform, thanks to the collaboration with the Tribeca Film Institute fund & IF/Then distribution initiative. Up to six projects will be selected for the IF/Then Short Pitch competition and take part in the Market meetings. The winner of the pitch receives up to USD 20,000 in production support from IF/Then and will participate in a year-long distribution initiative managed by the Tribeca Film Institute.
The EAST DOC PLATFORM is organized by the Institute of Documentary Film in association with the One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival.
