2021 saw the 10th anniversary of dok.incubator, a decade in which the film workshop worked with 159 documentaries, many going on to win awards at the world’s top festivals. Now, dok.incubator is accepting applications for the 2022 edition (Deadline: January 26, 2022).
Over the past 10 years, dok.incubator has helped 12 films to get into Sundance competitions, 30 IDFA screenings, and 5 European Film Award nominations. 10 years of such success is a great reason to celebrate, even in these complicated times. For the occasion, dok.incubator has organized a showcase of five films that came out of the workshop at this year’s Ji.hlava IDFF, 8 of which were then brought to IDFA for the official preview event. The films selected for the 2021 edition of dok.incubator deal with different themes, show various ways of storytelling and very different countries, including Venezuela, the Nordic countries, Spain, and Eastern Europe.
The workshop cooperates with prestigious festivals in Europe and America, and selectors from Sundance, Tribeca, Hot Docs, IDFA, and Berlinale often choose the films as it is a guarantee of quality. At the same time, dok.incubator works with the people who help to market and distribute films, sales agents.
The tutors of the workshops are people from the industry, very experienced producers, marketers, and editors who themselves regularly have films at top festivals. It is their practical experience that is crucial for the success of the workshop. And that is the way how the participants learn all the important parts of the process – by applying it directly to their films, for example coming up with their actual marketing and distribution plan.
