3rd session: “Episode 3: The Market” – Sunny Side of the Doc, La Rochelle, France (June 21 – 24, 2021)
Sunny Side of the Doc represents an important international market for meeting broadcasters, sales agents and other key decision makers not only from France. The focus and position of this market makes it a logical step for the last session of the East Doc Series programme, since it offers the possibility to meet many potential partners not only for the docu-series projects, but for establishing connections for other projects too, including feature-length and TV documentaries, as well as VR/AR and cross-media. In cooperation with Sunny Side of the Doc the third session will welcome a delegation of East European professionals who will attend with their projects and gain exclusive access to decision makers and individual meetings.
The programme will include:
○ Delegation of up to 10 producers from Central and Eastern Europe (5 docu-series projects, 5 feature-length projects selected on the base of open call, with preference given to the participants of the previous two sessions)
○ Pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings with decision makers
○ Producers will receive free accreditation passes allowing access to Sunny Side of the Doc market, public pitches, talks and other open programme and social events.
