DOK Leipzig Co-Pro Market

DOK Leipzig (October 30-November 5) has a strong market side parallel to the festival. The film selection for the competitive sections will be announced October 10 but already now you can get an impression of which projects to be presented at the DOK Co-Pro Market. From 350 applications, 35 were picked. And from the ones that I know about, I can only say – well done, strong projects, many of them away from the ordinary tv language like:

”The Smuggle Town” from Latvia by director and cinematographer Ivars Zviedris, presented at the Baltic Sea Forum in September, as was ”I’ll Stand by You” by Lithuanian/Italian Virginija Vareikyte and Maximilien Dejoie, both films with high-quality cinematography as you can also expect from another Lithuanian Audrius Mickevicius with his ”Exemplary Behaviour”. It was Mickevicius, who many years ago made ”Man-Horse”, a lyrical wonderfully slow documentary that was actually bought by several tv stations. His new project is different but also with a strong emphasis on the visualisation. And from Ukraine, by Alina Gorlova, the touching project about ”Andrey Suleyman”, who went from one war, in Syria, to another, in Eastern Ukraine. From Serbia comes Dragan Nikolic with his ”The Black Wedding”. Nikolic you will remember as the one, who made ”Caviar Connection” years ago.

Not to forget that Heddy Honigmann will come to Leipzig with her ”100UP”, a portrait of the lucky, or are they, people who reach that age!

And there are film projects from Afghanistan, Russia, Colombia, South Korea, Poland, Czech Republic, Georgia, South Africa, Turkey – and of course some from France and Belgium and Italy.

Hi Tue,
thanks for the kind words, we are also very excited to have such a varied list of talent in Leipzig for our DOK Co-Pro Market. We're doing all kinds of activities this year particularly relevant to your crowd might also be our new pitch format short'n'sweet. Most of the DOK Industry Programme is already online. Now if only I could convince some experts to talk on the expected consequences of the single digital market, we'd have a perfect programme and I could go on vacation for the next month until the festival starts :) But honestly, we just can't wait to greet everyone in Leipzig.
