ParisDOC Works-in-Progress 2020

A tailored platform to consider, discuss and plan the career of your film !

The ParisDOC Works-in-Progress actively support the distribution, promotion and placement of feature documentaries by linking, at a key stage of the production process, project holders (filmmakers and producers) to industry professionals.

The works-in-progress are selected based on their compatibility with Cinéma du Réel’s vision of promoting diversity in storytelling, and have the opportunity to be screened once in Paris, in theatrical conditions, in front of a select audience of French and international experts: festival and TV programmers, sales agents, theatrical and digital distributors who play a relevant and strategic role in the distribution and placement of new films in the industry.

Each Works-in-Progress screening is followed by active discussions between producers and/or filmmakers and industry professionals, who will provide consultations, strategic advice, and a chance to establish working collaborations. These discussions times can take the form of a Q&A and/or one-to-one meetings, depending on the wishes and needs of the participants.

The ParisDOC Works-in-Progress are a unique opportunity for project holders to plan the career of their film in a creative environment, and for industry professionals to discover new and exciting projects during their final stages of production.
