Works-in-Progress 2024

11th edition, 27-28 March


Submissions are now closed.

The official selection of ParisDOC Works-in-Progress will be published on the festival’s website by the end of February.


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 films in progress are selected according to their stage of production, their needs and potential in terms of diffusion, and their concordance with the editorial line of Cinéma du réel.

The selected films in progress will have the opportunity to be screened, once, in their entirety, between the 27 and 28 March at the Centre Pompidou. 

The professional audience is made up of carefully selected French and international experts, playing an active and strategic role in the distribution and placement of new films in the industry: festival programmers, sales agents, TV programmers, theatrical distributors, web platforms and exhibitors.

Each screening is followed by a discussion time, which can take the form of an informal meeting.

With a tailor-made offer, ParisDOC Works-in-Progress is a unique opportunity for project holders to reflect and build the path of their film in a favorable environment, and for professionals to have exclusive access to new promising projects.


AWARD POST-PRODUCTION SUPPORT:

In order to best support the selected projects, Studio Orlando is a partner of ParisDOC Works-in-Progress. As such, one of the selected projects will benefit from post-production support (sound mix or color grading) from Studio Orlando. 


EXPERTS:

Cinéma du réel invites three experts, Richard Copans, Antonio Pezzuto and Claire Simon, to exchange with the project holders. As peers, they will share analyses and recommendations. 

Richard Copans – Producer, director and cinematographer
Antonio Pezzuto – Festival Programmer
Claire Simon – Director, screenwriter, cinematographer and editor
