A Woman Captured flying to SUNDANCE in 2018

We are overjoyed to announce that after having spread its wings at IDFA in November 2017, Bernadett Tuza-Ritter’s unsettling film A Woman Captured is taking flight once more and will land at Sundance in 2018.

Bernadett’s first feature length traces the unbelievable story of Marish, a European woman who has been working as a slave in a Hungarian home for ten years. Starved, beaten, and exhausted, Marish’s determination to reclaim her life remains steadfast and, drawing courage from Bernadett’s presence, she steels herself to escape.

“It was one of the best experiences of my life and definitely the most professional workshop I’ve ever been to. I’m sure [A Woman Captured] wouldn’t be as successful without the help of dok.incubator.” – Bernadett Tuza-Ritter, director

“Everything was great. Nice, professional, smooth and useful. We felt privileged to be part of this top league.” – Viki Réka Kiss, producer

A Woman Captured will be the first ever Hungarian feature length documentary to compete at the prestigious Sundance World Documentary Competition, which selects a mere 12 films from around the world every year. We would like to wish our Hungarian participants from our 2017 workshop the very best of luck!

SUNDANCE 2017: Two dok.incubator teams in competition!

We are very proud and happy that two films developed at dok.incubator 2016 are competing at Sundance: Adam Sobel’s debut ‘The Workers Cup’; and ‘The Good Postman’, by established Bulgarian director Tonislav Hristov!

Adam’s first feature-length follows the young African and Asian labourers building the World Cup stadium in Qatar. Competing in their own football tournament, the Workers Cup, they hope that achieving glory on the pitch will be their ticket out of the squalid labour camps.

The Workers Cup’ simply wouldn’t have been possible without dok.incubator’s crash course in documentary finishing. Equal parts creative inspiration, logistical preparation, and editorial perspiration, it offered something we desperately needed: a clear path to complete our film.  – Adam Sobel

Tonislav Hristov has directed eight films but ‘The Good Postman’, which premiered at IDFA, is his biggest success yet. In a dying Bulgarian village, local postman Ivan has a vision: if he becomes mayor, the village will be saved – by welcoming refugees.

dok.incubator was a great experience.  It was lots of fun – we met good people and most importantly, professionals, who will help you to finish your film! –  Tonislav Hristov

The films compete in the prestigious Sundance World Documentary Competition, which selects only 12 films from around the world every year.

DOK.Incubator Preview 2016

DOK.Incubator Preview 2016

Four DOK.Incubator films at IDFA 2016

Four DOK.Incubator projects, three from this years’ workshop and one from 2015, will premiere at IDFA in November, bringing the total of our films competing at the Dutch film festival to 16 out of 40 since DOK.Incubator’s creation in 2011.

Festival-goers will be introduced to Ivan, The Good Postman /FI, BG/, who has a vision. If he becomes mayor of his dying Bulgarian village, they will be saved – by welcoming refugees. The film will compete for Feature-Length Documentary, alongside fellow DOK.Incubator 2016 project: Burning Out /BE, FR, CH/ follows the staff of a famous Parisian hospital, where the employees are undervalued, overworked, imposed stringent efficiency and productivity targets by the management, and on the verge of burning out.

Our final project from 2016 is a fascinating exploration of real female sexuality, as the two directors of Venus /DK, NO/ create a space for an intimate conversation about desire, lust, fantasy, shame and sexual freedom among young women. The film will feature in the IDFA Competition for First Appearance, where it will meet 2015 DOK Incubator project Amazona /CO/, following the journey of a mother and daughter to the Amazon to confront and heal the wounds inflicted by the past.

IDFA runs from November 16th to 27th.
