ZagrebDox Pro: Confessions


ZagrebDox Pro invites students to submit concepts for their final papers or first emerging professional projects to the ZAGREDBOX PRO: CONFESSIONS programme.

In the year of its coming of age, ZagrebDox Pro turns to peers, students and young filmmakers to communicate, reflect and present their own ideas, worries and fears through intimate, relaxed but honest encounters. That is why the key word of the project is confessions – revelations, testimonies… Both will be shared by established and successful professionals in moderated sessions, closed to the public, in which they will share knowledge, discover creative opportunities, define challenges, design solutions for (often identical) problems.

In times when we are adapting to new and different working conditions, it is necessary to make easier, faster and more efficient communication within professional circles possible and to create a space for the exchange of experiences and ideas through a more open and relaxed model. Experienced professionals who will be at the programme participants’ disposal will at the same time learn from young people about new trends and approaches, which will further enhance this intergenerational exchange and collaboration.

ZAGREBDOX PRO: CONFESSIONS 2022 (5-8 April 2022) is a four-day programme that will take place within this scope:
- Hybrid formats
- New schemes of European financing of documentary projects
- Production, promotion, distribution and networking
- Where did the classic pitching form go and what did it turn into?
- “And where am I here?” – presentations of student projects followed by conversations with fellow participants and film professionals

During the workshop, the participants will meet individually with film professionals (TV editors, sales representatives, distributors, producers, film fund representatives, international festival programmers and screenwriting consultants).

The official workshop language is English.

Participation in ZagrebDox Pro is free of charge.

Participants arriviing to the workshop from abroad can apply for a ZagrebDox Pro scholarship, which covers travel and accommodation costs during the workshop. ZagrebDox Pro will award a maximum of six scholarships.

In addition to students whose projects have been selected for the workshop, up to five participants without a project can attend the ZagrebDox Pro programme, and a letter of motivation and a CV are required.
