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 a rough-cut via our video library, exclusively made available to the film professionals. Every year, international juries are invited to give various awards.

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

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at industry@visionsdureel.ch.

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.
