The dok.incubator workshop in Telč (June 24th – 30th) will host the script editors of the five biggest festivals of Europe and North America (Sundance, Hot Docs, DOK Leipzig, IDFA and One World) to watch the documentaries in their latest stage of post-production.
The selectors will share their know-how on how their decisions are being made and what are the decisive factors of the film’s success or failure. Czech professional filmmakers can join the open programme to gain practical advices and information about the documentary distribution and meet top producers, the festivals‘ selectors, broadcasters and sales agents, who will share their experience with international distribution and will offer examples and practical case studies on how to position different films at the market.
Beside theoretical sessions, decision makers will be discussing tailor-made strategies for the rough-cuts of eight selected projects that have been developed during the dok.incubator mentoring workshop. The projects and the teams behind them come from the whole world and their projects cover a wide range of topics and genres. The workshop hosts a number of Eastern European projects, Slovenian Avenge is a part of the international workshop and thanks to the Visegrad Funding the regional part supports projects from Czech republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary.
