One of the Fall’s most notable European documentary events (along with the soon-to-be-in-June Sheffield Doc/Fest and IDFA), CPH:DOX has established its own unique voice (last year its jury awarded the grand prize to Harmony Korine’s TRASH HUMPERS…). Its DOX:FORUM has just been announced as relaunching as a financing forum for its next edition, November 10-12.
With the aim of showcasing innovative new non-fiction works in various stages of development to international producers, commissioning agents, other financiers, and programmers, DOX:FORUM will feature meetings, seminars, and networking opportunities for 20 selected projects which should run the gamut from documentary/fiction hybrids, high end theatrical doc prospects, and low-budget, non-traditional works.
While they note a natural emphasis on European and specifically Nordic filmmaking, they encourage applications from any interested filmmakers worldwide. Details on the free application process are here, with a deadline of September 1.
