Docs in Progress 2021
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.
For the very first time this 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 2021 will therefore incorporate documentaries and all the selected projects will be up for the same awards. Thus, Docs in Progress comes 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 15, 2021.
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.
