FAQ – dok.incubator SK

What’s the difference between the dok.incubator SK and international dok.incubator?

The Slovak programme shares only one residential session with the international group, but also offers individual follow-up consultations with the tutors and trips to DOK Leipzig and IDFA. We accept projects with a minimum of 50% of footage filmed to the regional workshop, whereas the international dok.incubator programme is open for the projects in the rough cut stage.

Do we need to spend all days at the workshop sessions?

Yes, attendance of all selected team members (director, editor, producer) during all days of the workshop sessions is REQUIRED

Will we have access to the programme of international dok.incubator?

Yes, however, your access to the international programme will be limited. You will meet and network with the tutors and participants of the international workshop and attend selected roundtables and sessions.

How does the selection process work?

The selection process consists of two rounds. In the first round, every project will be reviewed based on the filmic quality of the footage, filmmaker’s access to the main character, unique point of view. The projects with the highest score are then evaluated by regional workshop tutors within the second round of the selection. Tutors review the phase of development of your project, as well as the whole team behind the project (background, experience, motivations and goals).

We will inform the applicants about the selection results on May 6th, 2021, when the final 3 – 4 Slovak selected projects will be officially announced at dokincubator.net webpage.

 Are there any fees connected to the dok.incubator programme SK?

The participation fee for dok.incubator SK (programme for Slovak filmmakers) is 400 EUR. The accommodation and food at the workshop and the catalogues for three team members are for free.

Are there any additional consultations offered during the year?

dok.incubator SK offers tailor-made individual consultations with the tutors based on the needs of the project, including marketing advice on the synopsis, tagline, title, trailer editing consultations plus networking with the festival selectors and sales agents. There are two delegations to DOK Leipzig and IDFA offered to our participants.  They will provide producers and directors with the access to key international decision-makers and industry professionals.
