Open for Marketplace guests
The DOK.archive Award honours outstanding archive and compilation film projects in development. High-quality archive footage is often invaluable for documentaries. The use of historical or commercial film excerpts on a larger scale, however, increases the required production budget substantially. With the DOK.archive Award, British Pathé and DOK.forum aim at promoting projects utilising licensed material and thus strengthening this traditional documentary genre.
Five projects will be presented to a jury of five during a live pitching event at the DOK.forum Marketplace. The winning project will receive British Pathé archive material worth 15,000 euros, alternatively, 2,500 euros can be paid out in cash.
