International Documentary Film Festival ‘Zagreb Dox’ - 2009

place: Zagreb, Croatia
organiser: Zagreb Dox
ZagrebDox, an international documentary film festival is taking place in Zagreb from February 23rd to March 1st.  The festival has three programs - the Regional Competition, the International Competition and the Documentary & Other program.

Within the fifth ZagrebDox, a training workshop for documentary film projects in final phase of pre-production will be organized in order to help them find partners for their production.

Two days of intensive training led by international tutors will be followed by the Pitching Forum, where documentary film directors and/or producers will have an opportunity to launch their projects to a panel of international commissioning editors and representatives of film funds.

'After working hard on promotion of documentary production (primarily Croatian documentaries), the time came to enable Croatian audience to become acquainted with the world production of auteur, ‘creative’ documentaries.
And so, ZagrebDox was born… In spite of difficulties and occasional straying, it has been pursuing its goal to become the most relevant documentary festival in the region.'
