KFF INDUSTRY: PROJECTS QUALIFIED FOR CEDOC MARKET
A total of 29 projects qualified this year's CEDOC Market – the only international co-production market in Poland for documentary producers who are looking for Polish and foreign partners. The list includes documentaries from Poland, Great Britain, Romania, the Czech Republic, Serbia, and Hungary.
This year's CEDOC Market begins on 1 June and will last until 6 June 2022. The event is organised during the Krakow Film Festival as part of DOC LAB POLAND by the Władysław Ślesicki Film Foundation in cooperation with KFF Industry.
Among the projects selected this year at CEDOC Market there are films created in Jamaica, Ukraine, Vietnam, and Italy. Their creators follow the most important historical events, current problems, or individual stories of seemingly ordinary people. Many of them are socially conscious films and try to show that the world can be changed, but the fight is difficult, long, and unequal. Regardless of geography, the directors take their cameras into the most dangerous or forgotten areas to understand the modern world, show it, and ask what our future will look like.
