The dok.incubator rough-cut training initiative has announced its final selection of documentary projects for 2023. This year's workshop brings together eight international projects from Europe, Iran and Bhutan. The teams behind them will collaborate with international editors, producers and sales representatives to fine-tune their films and create marketing strategies in preparation for their festival premieres in 2024. The CEO of dok.incubator, Andrea Prenghyova, highlights the diversity and relevance of this year's selection, stating: “Every year, we see that the current social and political situation is imprinted into the films that apply for our workshop. I believe we have brought fresh and diverse perspectives, and this year's selection carries many important messages from the contemporary world.” In addition, four more projects are featured in the dok.incubator CZ selection and another four in dok.incubator SK. The main workshop sessions for each strand will take place on different dates in April, June and October, with individual consultations being organised all year round.

Female directors from Slovakia and the Czech Republic lead the slate of upcoming documentary projects with, for instance, Širín Nafariehová and Michael Jiřinec's Misplaced, which follows two freed political prisoners searching for their true home and purpose after being released from a Turkish prison. Eva Křižková's The Birdhill offers a unique perspective on capitalism through the lens of local stories and ornithological research. Amálie Kovářová's Million Moments delves to the heart of the Czech democracy movement, examining the confrontation between citizens and politicians.

presents an intimate coming-of-age story about responsibility, sisterhood and the struggle to balance personal dreams with family obligations.

All eight films from the incubator’s international slate are being directed or co-directed by female filmmakers, showcasing a range of filmmaking approaches, cultural backgrounds and themes. Notably, many of the projects feature strong female protagonists fighting for their rights, and defying gender and social stereotypes. Karolina Domagalska’s 5 Pills Away follows four women fighting against Poland's abortion ban, while Leila Amini’s Zun: An Octopus Under My Skin chronicles an Iranian woman's difficult journey to become a chanteuse in a country where solo singing is forbidden for women. Racing Hearts by Milla Bergh is an archival documentary about Ewy and Ursula, the first female competitive drivers for Mercedes-Benz in the 1960s. In Nice Ladies [+leggi anche:

by Mariia Ponomarova, elderly cheerleaders from Kharkiv claim the spotlight and find fulfilment in their sport, even as their lives are disrupted by the Russian invasion.

The selected documentaries also raise awareness of mental health and the power of the human spirit. Malgorzata Imielska’s Just Hear Me Out follows a Polish girl with paranoid schizophrenia determined to find her own path in life. Mina and the Radio Bandits by Kari Anne Moe documents Mina's quest to give freedom of speech to incarcerated individuals in six Norwegian prisons through a radio project. The Eternal War explores the impact of propaganda on people's thinking. Finally, Agent of Happiness [+leggi anche:

, co-directed by Arun Bhattarai and Dorottya Zurbo, whisks viewers away to Bhutan, where happiness is valued more highly than GDP. The film follows Amber, who conducts a survey to measure happiness in the country while searching for his own fulfilment.

This year's dok.incubator selections highlight the resilience and determination of women from diverse backgrounds, while also shining a light on the power of documentary filmmaking to capture the complexities of the human experience. As these projects are developed over the coming months, they promise to offer vital insights into the pressing issues and challenges facing today's world.
