THE INDUSTRY DAYS
The Industry Days will host delegations from the four countries. It will present 8 new projects during the International Coproduction Forum and organise a “Producers meet producers” session between Visegrad-Group countries and French producers. It will also provide knowledge about how to coproduce with these countries, case studies, keynotes and master classes. Our aim is to ignite collaborations and create long-lasting ties within the European documentary industry. FIPADOC will scout projects from the region and award them with an invitation to the Pitching Forum at different events. A first project, Easy Rider behind the iron curtain directed by Andrzej Miękus and produced by Olga Bieniek of Polish company FILMICON was selected in June, during Krakow Film Festival Industry. Another project will be selected during the next session of the Ex Oriente Workshop.
FIPADOC invites the documentary industry of the four countries to submit completed documentaries and projects in development.
Submissions of completed documentaries for the festival and of projects for the Forum produced or coproduced in the Visegrad-Group countries are free of charge. Please contact for a waiver:
