Festival Network Doc Around Europe – United for a strong European documentary film
Initiated by DOK.fest München in 2020, the new network Doc Around Europe (formerly: FestDocsEurope) brings together five relevant documentary film festivals throughout the continent.
The common goal is to promote and circulate European documentary films and experts and to accompany them at all stages of production and in all aspects of distribution, promotion and presentation.
Design: Samir Karahasan / MakeDox
5 festivals – 5 strong partners
With DOK.fest München, DocsBarcelona, MakeDox (Skopje, North Macedonia), FIPADOC (Biarritz, France) and Verzió (Budapest, Hungary) five documentary film festivals from four European regions are joining forces.
Joint industry programme: mentoring & practice talks
Focus on young European filmmakers: Participants go through an intensive mentoring programme between Biarritz and Skopje throughout the year.
In times of great upheaval in the film industry worldwide, Doc Around Europe focuses on international networking and active exchange on the central issues of the future of documentary film.
Festival films on tour in Europe
As part of each festival, Doc Around Europe presents a showcase with festival film highlights from the European partners.
