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 10, 2014.

Docs in Thessaloniki consist 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 from leading broadcasters. The pitching session is followed by individual meetings between pitchers and financiers for in-depth discussions about further development and possible future collaboration.

Docs in Thessaloniki takes place on March 19-23, 2014 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 constructive environment during springtime in Greece.

Participating without a project

If you do not have a project ready to pitch, you can still take part in Docs in Thessaloniki. We have a number of seats available for participants without a project. 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 10, 2014.

In order to submit a project for pitching at Docs in Thessaloniki please send in English a 2-page description of your documentary project. We prefer receiving applications accompanied by visual material; either as material already shot for the submitted project or as a previous work.
