    Sunny Side of the Doc 2022: the complete winners

    The 33rd Sunny Side of the Doc has drawn to a close after 4 days of return to La Rochelle. The event ran in congruence with the 6th virtual reality-focused PiXii Festival, which took over eight cultural and heritage sites across the city.

    With NewVoices as the central theme, compelling stories from around the world were heard throughout the event. These New Voices included emerging talent from all age groups and industry professionals from under-represented communities and countries. All in all, more than 2,000 participants from 67 different countries, 1,100 accredited companies and almost 400 international decision-makers, as well as delegations from Spain, Italy, Canada, South Africa, Finland and China, took part in the event.

    Now, with the announcement of 19 – 22, 2023 as the dates of the 34th Sunny Side of the Doc, the complete winners from 2022 have been announced across all categories.
