Al Jazeera Documentary and the AJB DOC Film Festival have announced the call for a new international project entitled Al Jazeera Documentary Industry Days @ AJB DOC, which will take place in Sarajevo during the festival (9-13 September 2022). This event intends to support the expansion of documentaries worldwide, including international co-productions, and introduce exciting and valuable projects to key decision-makers.
It will provide documentary filmmakers from the Southeast Europe, Caucasus and MENA regions with an opportunity to network with decision-makers and leading professionals from both regional and international film and TV industries. The event aims to help them secure funding for documentary productions and support for their broadcast, distribution, screening and sales worldwide.
The gathering will be divided into the Main Pitch (for projects at all stages of development), Work in Progress (projects in post-production) and Balkan Star (projects in development), taking place from 10-12 September. The call is now open, and the submission deadline is 30 June.
AJB Industry Days @ AJB DOC plans to organise three-day meetings with the creators of various projects. After the initial presentations, the event will culminate in one-to-one meetings. Key benefits also include accessing a qualified and diverse professional audience, sealing financial deals, finding potential partners, and meeting with other industry professionals.
