Docs in Progress

In the past years at this event, producers and directors from the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the former Soviet Union, the Middle East and North Africa introduced new documentary films that would premiere after the Karlovy Vary IFF.
The most promising project of Docs in Progress used to receive a cash award in a total value of 5 000 EUR.

Focus of the section

Last year, we have decided to merge fiction and documentary films as we consider both categories, despite their differences, to possess the same artistic value. Works in Progress 2022 will therefore continue to incorporate documentaries and all the selected projects will be up for the same awards. Thus, Docs in Progress came to an end as a separate industry presentation. You may find all the information including submission requirements here.

Submissions are now open within Works in Progress.
The deadline for submissions is May 6, 2022.

In the past years, producers used to have up to 10 minutes to present each project, which included three short excerpts from the film. Following the panel, we assisted interested visitors of the programme to set up individual meetings with the presenters to get more information about their projects.

In the past years, a maximum of 10 films used to be presented from the following countries:

Albania, Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Egypt, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lebanon, Libya, Lithuania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Moldavia, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Syria, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan and Yemen.
