The 26th edition of Baltic Sea Forum for Documentaries (BSD) will take place from 5 – 11 September 2022 in Riga, Latvia.
Baltic Sea Docs have now opened its call for projects, which will go through 10 June, and is looking for applications from independent production companies from the wider Baltic Sea region countries, Eastern Europe and C#aucasus region, and from other countries if the documentary subject relates to the region. However, as a response to the war Russia is waging in Ukraine, projects from production companies based in Russia and Belarus, as well as those thematically focusing on both countries will not be eligible in the 2022 edition.
The main focus of the Forum is on full-length creative documentary projects, but cross-media applications are also welcome to apply. Participation at Baltic Sea Docs is free of charge. The selection results will be announced by 11 July.
Among the completed films presented as projects in the previous editions of the Forum are such films as How to Save a Dead Friend (dir. Marusya Syroechkovskaya), Courage (dir. Aliaksei Paluyan), My Favorite War (dir. Ilze Burkovska Jacobsen), and many others.
