dok.incubator workshop seeking applicants

The forthcoming edition of dok.incubator, scheduled to run from April - September 2019, is now inviting directors, editors and producers in the rough cut stage to apply to its intensive project development workshop. 

Focusing on editing, marketing and distribution, this post-production workshop received funding support through the latest round of Creative Europe's Training scheme

Across a period of six months, selected teams will work to finetune their storytelling and underscore their film's unique perspective. The workshop facilitates access to internationally experienced experts in the world of documentary film and they will provide hands-on guidance throughout, as well as assisting in devising a bespoke marketing and distribution strategy. dok.incubator nurtures projects on its journey from a modest rough-cut to a high-end film with the potential to attract a global audience. 

Several films from previous cohorts have gone on to achieve significant success. A Woman Captured, which was selected for participation in the 2017 edition of the workshop has since gone on to premiere at IFDA and was also selected for Sundance 2017. The Hungarian and German co-production, which tackles the issue of modern day slavery, will also compete in the European Film Awards taking place next week. The film was also supported through the Creative Europe Slate development scheme.

Similarly, Beniamino Barrese's Italian documentary The Disappearance of My Mother, has been selected to premiere in the Sundance World Cinema Documentary Competition. 

Filmmakers interested in applying can so do via the dok.incubator website. The deadline is 30th January 2019.
