05 May IEFTA Sponsor Docs-In-Progress Award 2022 at Cannes Docs for a Fourth Year
For the 4th consecutive year IEFTA is collaborating with Cannes Docs at the Marché to award a €10,000 Docs-in-Progress Awards to the filmmakers behind the most promising submission.
IEFTA will sponsor a cash award of 10,000€ given to one of the docs-in-progress entrants from countries participating in the Marché’s ‘Docs-in-Progress Showcases at the Doc Corner’ program headed by Pierre-Alexis Chevit, Head of Cannes Docs.
Each year, Cannes Docs partners with a number of festivals and organizations from all over the world to showcase curated selections of docs-in-progress in finalization stage, aiming to hit the circuit within a few weeks or months. These showcases of docs-in-progress are primarily designed for decision makers looking for fresh new titles, in particular festival programmers and sales agents. The projects are also generally in search of post-production funding or general gap financing, and sometimes still open to co-production opportunities.
The docs-in-progress will be unveiled in the form of a pitch and a 10 minutes sequence of the rough cut. All docs-in-progress have the chance to win a number of prizes, including the €10,000 Docs-in-Progress Award, supported by IEFTA. The Award provides invaluable recognition and concrete support to filmmakers eager to finish their films.
Winners will be announced at the end of the festival and published here.
