Docs in Progress

Docs in Progress, as part of Visions du Réel Industry, presents about eight films in their finishing stage. Through a screening to film professionals exclusively (festival representatives, funds supporting post-production, post-production facilities, distributors, TV buyers, etc.) and through specific individual meetings, the aim of this activity is to allow the projects’ holders to find suitable partners to go into and/or finalise post-production, to look for distribution, festivals, sales, etc.

Selection criteria
We are looking for singular and original films that combine artistic ambition and high visual quality. We are interested in presenting a wide spectrum of practices and approaches. The projects should be intended as creative documentaries with theatrical potential on international markets and should address an international audience. They may be the work of an experienced or emerging director, based anywhere in the world.

The projects will be reviewed by a selection committee.
