Master's Pitch goes Master's Visions

 

As the Master's Pitch on the 8th of May can unfortunately not be realised as an on-site event and since the format cannot be transferred to the digital world without losing its fruitful atmosphere of cooperation, Documentary Campus and DOK.forum Munich decided on a modified version for this year’s festival edition:

Master's Pitch goes Master's Vision. The Corona virus is currently also stirring up the film industry. Selected jury members and project teams for this year’s Master's Pitch goes Master's Vision were invited to share insights and visions on their current working reality and the impact that Covid-19 will have on the future of the documentary film industry. How is the crisis changing our reality? What consequences will it have for filmmakers worldwide? What strategies can we use to counter it? In video statements, 10 international professionals provide answers - and exclusive insights into their life and work with Covid-19.

Hosted by documentary film advisor Karolina Lidin from Nordisk Film & TV Fund.

 

The 10 video interviews will be published daily on Youtube, our website and Facebook during the DOK.forum event period between 7th and 16th May.
