Up to 15 new, nearly or recently finished documentary films will be selected for presentation in moderated individual 20 minute presentation sessions during the Forum days.

At DOX:FORUM you will introduce your project in two ways:
A: As a presentation or moderated talk taking place in front of all Forum participants. You have 30 minutes at the round table with the company of two wonderful moderators and a small panel of distributors representing different distribution outlets and composed to meet and match your project. 30 minutes to introduce your project, screen some visuals and engage in dialogue with the panelists.
B: As you like in the 8 to 10 one-on-one meetings guaranteed you during the Forum days.
Please do, but we guarantee you 8 to 10 individual meetings with representatives from different distribution platforms, based on your wishes and our expertise.
Opening each session of presentations, the panelists are asked to introduce themselves and their platform. Thus turning the table, the Forum gives new and interesting platforms an opportunity to introduce themselves to the industry and a chance to discuss new strategies and ideas with content providers and other distribution outlets. In addition, distribution platforms are presented in the DOX:FORUM catalogue.
Mixing project presentations with seminar sessions focusing on current distribution issues is integral to the DOX:FORUM, making it not only a marketplace, but also a forum for education and knowledge sharing. SO yes!
