VdR–Work in Progress

VdR–Work in Progress is a showcase that puts spotlight on upcoming creative documentaries in their finishing stage. Excerpts are shown in order to seek for distribution opportunities, think about festival strategies and post-production funds.

Our call for projects is now open. If you wish to submit a project, please follow this link.

The Work in Progress aims to allow the project holders to find suitable partners to work with and/or with whom to finalise post-production and to look for distribution opportunities. This is achieved through a live presentation of excerpts, specific individual meetings, and the access to a rough-cut via our video library, exclusively made available to the film professionals. Every year, international juries are invited to give various awards.

First deadline: November 7, 2022 – for projects already ready for submission.
Final deadline: December 22, 2022

If you are interested in attending the event as a professional, please contact us directly. VdR–Work in Progress is primarily open to the project holders and various invited decision makers, including festival representatives, distributors, TV commissioning editors, funds supporting post-production, post-production facilities.

For further information regarding this activity, we invite you to read our Terms and Regulations.
