The selected projects will have 15 minute one-to one-private online meetings with financers and decision-makers. The meetings will be arranged previously by matching financers and projects’ needs. They will take place over 2 days and the schedule will be adjusted to the different world time zones.

It will be the time to establish the agreements that will make it possible for the participating projects to become films and meet their audience.

What projects can be submitted?

Documentary projects in a development, pre- production, production or close to start postproduction, from 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 Speed Meetings Award, with a cash prize of €2,000.

Check the awards here.
