Docs in Thessaloniki consists of a five-day program, where 21 selected documentary projects will be developed, re-written and pitched to a panel of international financiers. The pitching session is followed by individual meetings between pitchers and financiers for in-depth discussions about future collaborations. For a selected group of top-projects, a dedicated outreach programme will offer opportunities to develop your outreach strategy, optimise distribution plans and enhance audience engagement. Additionally, the unique Docs in Thessaloniki Digital Extension makes the pitched projects even more accessible to financiers than ever before.

Docs in Thessaloniki takes place on March 1-5, 2019 in connection with the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival and market. The pitching forum, festival and market form a great opportunity to develop your project, see films and meet international financiers in a creative and constructive environment during springtime in Greece.
