15th August 2014 Lisbon Docs 2014 
Go »
The 2014 edition of Lisbon Docs (October 14-18, 2014) concentrates on strategies to create top-quality documentary projects and on how to deliver them to existing and to new audiences. So if you are a documentary maker with an international project in development Lisbon Docs is the place to be.

Lisbon Docs is an international financing and coproduction forum for documentary film, which takes place in the framework of doclisboa - International Film Festival. At Lisbon Docs you'll be introduced to the power of new players in the distribution and financing markets. The workshop sessions will focus on analysing the content of the selected projects, on delivering advice on how to tell the stories in a way that will allow people to find an audience without losing artistic integrity.

Lisbon Docs concludes with all projects being pitched to a panel of leading broadcasters, financiers and experts. Following the pitch projects and panelists will be individually matched for meeting. The panel participants for the concluding pitching sessions will be announced as we have them available.

The winners of the pitching session will receive a follow-up consultancy by the EDN team and the opportunity to demonstrate the progress that has been made in the development of their project - and to reach decision makers that were not present during the Lisbon Docs 2014 pitching session - by organising an online pitch a couple of months later.

Lisbon Docs will offer extra power to your international development and financing strategy. 20 selected documentary projects will be developed in the intense workshop. Priority will be given to producer-director teams. The Lisbon Docs expert team will assist you in defining a realistic strategy to finance your documentary and offer you the tools to boost your persuasiveness during the pitching stages after the event. The workshop will be run by EDN Director Paul Pauwels. The tutor team of the workshop will soon be announced here at the web site.

Lisbon Docs is open for all European documentary professionals and has a limited number of seats for participants coming from outside Europe. Submissions are accepted from professionals, who want to take part in an intense creative dialogue and development process as well as present their project to potential documentary financiers, European television channels and producers. In the past Lisbon Docs has proven to be successful in pushing filmmakers into the international scene.
