Agora Docs returns for the upcoming 24th Thessaloniki Documentary Festival, held from March 10-20, 2022. Agora Docs itself will take place from March 11-19, 2022, inviting documentary filmmakers to submit their films in the Agora Doc Market, the Docs in Progress and the Thessaloniki Pitching Forum sections.
Agora invites filmmakers who have a documentary in post-production and are looking for a distributor, a festival premiere or completion funds to submit their films in Agora Docs in Progress (deadline for entries: January 14, 2022).
For the eleventh consecutive year, the Docs in Progress segment remains the main meeting event for documentary films that have entered the last stage prior to their completion. Directors and producers have the chance to present their documentary films to buyers, co-producers, festival representatives and sales agents, and attract their interest.
Agora Docs also presents the Agora Lab initiative, a 3-day development workshop (16-19 March), in which experienced editors and doc professionals both from Greece and abroad guide filmmakers of Greek documentaries towards their final cut. Up to five projects will be selected from the Docs in Progress pool of submissions.
In addition, Agora hosts Thessaloniki Pitching Forum (deadline for entries: January 14, 2022), an initiative focused on developing documentaries. The Thessaloniki Pitching Forum explores the limits of documentary by inviting TV and creative documentaries, documentary series documentaries for children and new media projects (Virtual Reality or/and Augmented Reality, etc.).
