Basque Audiovisual returns to Sunny Side of the Doc
Euskara. Kultura. Mundura.
As in every year, Basque Audiovisual will see to it that Basque documentaries have a presence at the international marketplace Sunny Side of the Doc. The event, which brings together more than 2,000 professionals from the documentary film sector, is usually held in La Rochelle, France, but this year will be moved online from 21 to 24 June.
The aim of Basque Audiovisual at this marketplace is to boost the presence and visibility of Basque documentaries. For those interested, the deadline for submitting documentary projects to the pitch sessions and feature in the official catalogue is April 22nd. The deadline for accrediting companies is May 28th.
Aware of the difficulties of participating in a virtual fair, a ´Meet the Delegates´ programme will be organized to raise the profile of Basque Audiovisual professionals. Basque producers will have the chance to present their work to a specialised audience. More details will be announced in the coming weeks.
This marketplace is best known for bringing together the most important players in the documentary market, including producers, television broadcasters and documentary distributors from around the world in an environment different from major television trade shows. For this reason, the event can prove very effective, both for companies looking to sell finished documentaries and for those looking for international television co-production partners.
Parties interested in attend international audiovisual markets may apply to Zineuskadi for reimbursement of accreditation fees.
