Open Call: Doc Alliance is looking for allies

The Doc Alliance network cordially invites European documentary film festivals to apply as a guest festival for 2024.

In this capacity, the selected festival will form part of our closely co-operating network for one year and can expect regular exchange with colleagues at all seven festivals, joint presentations at major industry markets such as Berlinale EFM or Cannes Docs, and to participate in the selection of nominations for the annual Doc Alliance Award, which will take place this year at the 2023 guest festival DokuFest Kosovo.

What we are looking for:

  • European documentary film festivals outside of our home countries (Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland). We prefer festivals from low-production capacity countries.
  • Informal cooperation lasting one year (starting December 2023). Becoming a guest festival doesn’t mean an invitation to become a permanent member of Doc Alliance.
  • Sharing know-how in particular areas of festival planning.
  • Participating in the selection of nominations for the annual Doc Alliance Award and screening of the nominated films.

The submissions will open on June 1st, 2023. You will find the application form below, with a deadline on September 1st, 2023.
