dok.incubator invites editors, directors and producers to a six–month long workshop, focused on filmmakers’ professional development with the guidance of world class tutors. Eight teams, composed of a producer, a director and an editor, will focus on the film’s unique perspective and sharpening the storytelling, placing it within the international context and finding concrete tools to effectively approach future audiences. Intensive work on editing, distribution and audience-building upgrades your rough-cut to a high-end film with the potential to meet worldwide interest.

What to expect?

  • Intensive 6 months of editing and project development aiming for picture lock in early autumn 2020
  • 25 internationally-active filmmakers tutor you throughout the postproduction period
  • Get personal feedback on your cut from key festival representatives, sales agents and other decision makers
  • Build your own tailor-made marketing and distribution strategy
  • Participation of your whole creative teams in three intensive week-long workshops:

1st session: April 27th – May 2nd // Banská Štiavnica, Slovakia // ROUGH CUT

3rd session: September 14th – 21st // Sweden // NEAR PICTURE LOCK
