DocsBarcelona Pitching Forum is an established stage for unfinished documentary projects from all over the world seeking financing, promotion or networking basis. With a large number of documentarians as well as film professionals, the venue became one of the major winter season meetings since its foundation in 1996 by EDN. Although the preliminary workshop is optional, it is an essential opportunity for any producer/filmmaker who aims to fine-tune their project before the public pitching itself. In addition to that, Eastern European and “New European” countries (including Malta and Greece) are offered special fees to attend either as a workshop participant, a project pitcher or as an observer. Observers may find special registration form HERE.
