ZagrebDox Pro is a training programme for documentary projects in various stages of development and production that includes a Pitching Forum, one-on-one meetings with film industry representatives and a range of masterclasses and panel sessions on current topics in documentary film.
During the intensive four-day workshop, director-producer teams of independent creative documentaries work on improving their pitching skills in order to best present their projects to future financiers and potential co-producers. In specific cases, project teams can be accompanied by a scriptwriter, cinematographer or editor.
ZagrebDox Pro aims to help the participants reach international partners needed for completion of their films through individual and group work on project presentation, by working on improving the structure of the financial plan, and the quality of the teaser.
The workshop trainers and Pitching Forum moderators are the director of Biografilm Festival Leena Pasanen and independent producer Stefano Tealdi.
Attending ZAGREBDOX PRO is completely free of charge.
The attendants who do not live in Croatia can apply for ZagrebDox Pro's scholarship that covers travel and accommodation expenses for the workshop. ZagrebDox Pro will provide up to six scholarships.
Along with project teams, up to ten participants without a project can attend the closed sessions of ZagrebDox Pro. Several sessions open to the public will be organised as well.
NEW DEADLINE for entries for ZAGREBDOX PRO 2019 is December 13, 2019 (applications will be accepted until midnight).
