Dox in Vitro is aimed at young producers and documentary filmmakers who will be introduced to the „real world“ of the European film market and documentary films. The workshop will focus on the development of documentaries under the guidance of experienced tutors and emphasize the role and need of co-productions in today's documentary sector. The submission deadline is 10 August 2018.

Dox in Vitro (documentary projects in a test tube) is a two-day seminar and workshop focused on development of documentary projects organised with its main partner, European Documentary Network (EDN). It is designed for up and coming producers and documentary filmmakers from Central Europe. Following the event, EDN will offer further opportunities for a select group of project team members to present their work at other forums throughout Europe.
