With the fragments of truth that the Documentary Film brings to the screen, it can constitute a base for the raising of issues and exchanging of views, not only through the screening of the films, but also through the parallel events featured in the programme of the Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival. For the third year, a Market for Documentary Films will be held in Thessaloniki, its aim being to cover the specific sectors of commercial activity dictated by the needs of the television networks of the Balkans.

Fourteen Balkan countries will be participating in the Doc Market, as well as Cyprus, France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Finland, Poland, Belgium, Turkey, Sweden, Switzerland, Russia, Portugal, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Zimbabwe, Denmark, India, Iran, Latvia, Malaysia, Mozambique, New Zealand, Poland, Israel, Ireland, Spain, the UK, Canada, and the US, through the presentation of independently produced documentary films. The Market will offer the opportunity not only for filmmakers to receive up-to-date information and participate in fora concerning the production of television documentaries, but also for the exploration of this area and the prospects for the assimilation of this genre into the television market. It is a fact that in recent years, we have seen a change in the attitude of television stations, as they tend, more and more, to include documentaries in their programming.

One of the main goals of the Doc Market is to give the big picture of what is going on in the area of documentary film; once the producers are aware of the intentions of the market, they can continue to produce, thus increasing the range and securing the continuity of this film genre.
