The submissions for CEDOC MARKET (Central European Documentary Coproduction Market) organized as part of Doc Lab Poland during KFF Industry at the Krakow Film Festival and as are still open. The market aims for producers with a documentary project in development or early production. Participation in the market is an opportunity to meet potential co-producers as well as sales agents, distributors or film funds. The submissions will last until April 10, 2022 (till 31st March submissions are free).
We invite producers of documentary projects in the development stage or at an early stage of production. You can also apply for the event without a project, then the producer's experience in international co-productions will be taken into account. Market participants (producers and, optionally, directors) receive Industry accreditation allowing them to participate in all industry events of the festival and authorizing them to enter the screenings in the official KFF program. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, details of the event will be announced at a later date.
The specificity of CEDOC Market are multi-track meetings. On the one hand producers, as in most markets, meet with representatives of film funds, training programs, sales agents or TV broadcasters. An important part of CEDOC are also "round tables" devoted to selected topics corresponding to the specificity of the films they are working on.
Submissions for CEDOC Market lasts until April 10, 2022. The cost of participation in the market - for selected projects is PLN 200 + VAT / 50 EUR per project for projects from outside Poland. Projects submitted before the early bird deadline, 31st March 2022, will have their fee waived. The application form is available at the link http://doclab.pl/pl_PL/nabor/formularz/.
This year CEDOC teams up with PITCH THE DOC – an online hub focused on international promotion of curated documentary film projects and dedicated for film professionals. The cooperation will facilitate convenient access to all the projects’ details collected in one place. Pitch the Doc’s contribution will also have positive impact on establishing contacts beyond the physical market and making it easier to follow-up on the further development of projects presented at CEDOC, also after the event and for those unable to participate in meetings in Cracow. We believe this collaboration will benefit all participating filmmakers, producers and industry professionals.

Agnieszka Zwiefka, "Diagnosis" by Ewa Podgórska, "Pollywood" by Paweł Ferdek, "The Village of Swimming Cows" by Katarzyna Trzaska, "Ordinary Country" by Tomasz Wolski, "Opera About Poland" by Piotr Stasik and "The Last Expedition" by Eliza Kubarska.
