Four selected projects at rough cut stage will be pitched online in front of a panel of commissioning editors, film funds, sales agents and documentary experts.

Each project will have a 25 minute presentation, and there will be questions and answers with the financers for 20 minutes. Financers will haveprevious access to the project’s materials, including the trailer and a selected scene.

Previously, participants will have an online consultancy with a tutor to prepare the Pitch.

What projects can be submitted?

Documentary projects at rough cut stage, of any nationality and about any subject.

Development awards

Aware of the great struggle the industry is going through in these difficult times, this year DocsBarcelona wants to acknowledge the effort made by all the projects going ahead despite the adverse circumstances, and will therefore grant the Music Library Award, with a cash prize of €1,000 and a flat music license fee valued at €295
