Gneneral Application information dok.incubator invites Czech producers, directors and editors to dok.incubator CZ – a long-term support programme for Czech filmmakers. Teams of selected film projects will work with internationally-established tutors and will get direct access to important industry events: to DOK.Leipzig and IDFA to meet key industry figures!

What to expect?

The whole creative team (producer, director, editor) will attend a five-day workshop session in Banská Štiavnica and three-day workshop session in Prague in the company of top European editors and producers to focus the topic of the film and sharpen the storytelling. 

Banská Štiavnica workshop dates: 22nd-26th August 2020

Prague workshop dates: 16th-18th October 2020

Please note that the date of the workshop might be postponed due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

During the workshops, you will work in the editing room on the cut and also with a production tutor, sales agents and festival representatives on a clever tailor-made marketing and distribution strategy. You will also get individual consultations in the following months with your tutors upon request.

The programme also includes trips to DOK Leipzig and IDFA, where you will be introduced to key industry decision-makers and the festival programmers.

Unlike the international dok.incubator workshop this support programme for regional filmmakers accepts projects not only in the post-production stage but also during the shooting period. We accept projects that have filmed at least 50% of their material and started the editing.
