Festival Concierge will create custom-tailored versions of the Catalogue for festivals around the world, curated in each case to ensure that the right films are presented to the right programmers. Each unique version of the Catalogue will take into account factors like premiere requirements and, where applicable, a festival’s thematic focus. For example, the versions of the Catalogue sent to environmental or human rights-focused festivals would only include productions relevant to those themes.
When a festival programmer sees a title in the catalogue that they wish to solicit, they will be able to contact the relevant filmmaker, via DOC, to request that the film be formally submitted.
Since launching the Catalogue in October, we’ve received over 70 submissions and have had enthusiastic responses from programmers at IDFA, CPH:DOX, Visions du Réel, Sheffield Doc/Fest, and more. In order to maintain this momentum and to ensure the Catalogue continues to serve as avenue of discovery for festival programmers, we’re particularly looking for 2017 productions, including works in progress. In addition, if your project has been invited to screen at the 2017 editions of Hot Docs or DOXA, we would especially love to see it included.
To have your project listed in the catalogue, simply click here to complete the online submission form or contact Festival Concierge Manager Julian Carrington to let him know that you’re interested in participating. It's free for DOC members!
