{mosimage}Docs in Thessaloniki is an international pitching forum and workshop offering an outstanding opportunity to create alliances for future collaborations.   Here you will develop & pitch your project and network with European colleagues and financiers in a relaxed and constructive atmosphere. Submission deadline is on January 22, 2010.

Docs in Thessaloniki consist of a five-day programme, where 21 selected documentary projects will be developed, re-written and pitched. The first three days of the event is a pitching workshop. The participating project teams are working on their projects' structure, style and focus of the content as well as the presentation and pitching techniques.

Docs in Thessaloniki concludes with a two-day pitching session. During the pitching session all participants pitch their projects to a panel of 12 - 15 international financiers from leading broadcasters. The pitching session is followed by scheduled individual meetings between the pitching teams and the financiers. The meetings are for in-depth discussions about further development and possible future collaboration.
