Dok.incubator Preview Spotlights 8 Freshly Baked Documentaries
Nordisk Panorama Film festival will this year once again host the dok.incubator preview session, an exclusive showcase of eight outstanding documentary features just before their premiere. The films developed in the rough cut workshop explore different themes – complex social issues as well as personal dramas – yet unite in creating social and creative impact around some of the current global and national issues.
Films from previous dok.incubator editions have achieved remarkable results throughout the industry. This year, The Worker’s Cup - a documentary about migrant workers inside Qatar’s labor camps - has been nominated for an Emmy Award. Another project, A Woman Captured, received a nomination for the European Film Awards in 2018 and many of them premiered at prestigious festivals such as Sundance, Berlinale, IDFA, CPH:DOX, Hot Docs, etc. This year’s preview is therefore highly anticipated and includes, among others, the title Epipo, Our Land, produced by EDN member Sára László.
Epipo, Our Land (HU, FR) is a film about a child abuse scandal that forces the film director on a personal journey to reconstruct her troubling childhood memories about her admired summer camp and its charismatic leader. The dok.incubator preview will be the final opportunity to see the just-about-to-be-released films before they screen at international festivals. The event takes place on Sunday September 22nd at 9.30 a.m in Cinema Panora in Malmö.
