Docs in Thessaloniki 2016: Call for Submissions
Docs in Thessaloniki is an international pitching forum offering an outstanding opportunity to create alliances for future collaborations. Here you will develop your project, pitch it to leading financiers and network with European colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere. Submission deadline is January 15, 2016.
Docs in Thessaloniki consists of a five-day programme, where 21 selected documentary projects will be developed, re-written and pitched. Docs in Thessaloniki concludes with two days of pitching where all participants pitch their projects to a panel of 12-15 international financiers and decision-makers. The pitching session is followed by individual meetings between pitchers and financiers for in-depth discussions about the further development and a possible future collaboration. For a selected group of top-projects a new outreach programme will offer an opportunity to develop your outreach strategy, optimize distribution plans and enhance audience engagement.
Docs in Thessaloniki takes place on March 16-20, 2016 in connection with the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival and market. The pitching forum, festival and market form a great opportunity to develop your project, see films and meet international financiers in a creative and inspiring environment during springtime in Greece.

You will take part in the full Docs in Thessaloniki program on equal terms with the pitching participants. Only exception is not having a concrete project developed and pitched.
Deadline for submitting your project is on January 15, 2016.
