The 20th Thessaloniki Documentary Festival’s (2-11 March) parallel industry event, the International Doc Market, has announced the selection for its 19th edition. Running from 4-10 March at Thessaloniki’s Port Warehouse C, the Doc Market will welcome close to 80 buyers and 140 industry professionals, who will have the chance to attend a series of events and special sections that cover all aspects of production, focusing on South-Eastern Europe, the Balkans and the Mediterranean, while the video library will give them access to approximately 490 documentaries. The TDF’s Doc Market is supported by Creative Europe – MEDIA.
Continuing its collaboration with the European Documentary Network (EDN), which started back in 2001, the Doc Market is hosting the 18th EDN Docs in Thessaloniki – Pitching Forum from 2-6 March. The forum, which is divided into two sessions, gives documentary professionals a chance to present their upcoming projects to a selected panel of international financiers, commissioning editors and representatives of various international audiovisual media. The first three days have been set aside for the training of the participants, who will pitch their projects on 5 and 6 March. After the end of the Pitching Forum, on 6 March, a dedicated panel on building an audience from an early stage will be led by Gruvi CEO Ben Johnson. The Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation (ERT SA) will also bestow the ERT Doc on Air Award to the best team at Docs in Thessaloniki.
