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.

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 visual material via our video library, exclusively made available to the film professionals. Every year, international juries are invited to give various awards.
