East Doc Series Debuts With Five Projects


    RIGA: Five projects have been selected for the first session of East Doc Series, which takes place online at Baltic Sea Docs on 2 and 7 – 8 September 2020.

    Sergei Trofimov, the Coordinator of the East Doc Series programme, said: “One of the most crucial elements which was taken in consideration from the beginning was the accordance of the project to classical or traditional television slots. As a result, five projects selected for the programme match the Architecture, History, Sport, Science, Crime, Investigation and Society slots. That means a clear representation for potential coproducers, decision makers and broadcasters.”

    The introductory session of East Doc Series includes individual meetings with decision makers, consultations, lectures and case studies of docu-series.
