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 submissions for VdR–Work in Progress 2021 are now closed.

This year, the Work in Progress’ projects presentation will be held online from a format thought to be community centered and user-friendly as a way to make it accessible to everyone.

At the same time, with participants’ health and safety as top priorities, we will welcome those who can physically come to Nyon, especially for the individual meetings (thought to be held both online and on-site).

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.

The Work in Progress is accessible by invitation only. It is primarily open to the project holders and various decision makers, including festival representatives, distributors, TV commissioning editors, funds supporting post-production, post-production facilities.
