Cannes Docs – Marché du film announces 2021 docs-in-progress award winners

    The 2021 Cannes Docs – Marché du film docs-in-progress awards have been handed out. The awards come as part of Cannes Docs central Doc Day event.

    Each year, Cannes Docs partner docs-in-progress showcases are designed for those looking for fresh new titles. The projects are also generally in search of post-production funding or general gap financing, and sometimes still open to co-production opportunities. Each showcase was held both on site and online, and were composed of four projects presented as a pitch and a 10-minute excerpt of the rough cut.
