Visions du Réel: Festival international de cinéma Nyon is now accepting submissions for its 29th edition. The Festival, which will take place from April 13-21, is seeking original documentary projects that combine artistic ambition and high visual quality with commitment for the subject and protagonists. The project should be intended as a creative feature-length documentary with theatrical potential.
Pitching du Réel welcomes projects by experienced as well as new directors, who have at least directed short films. The project should already be well developed and have basic financing in place.
Rough Cut Lab is a program for first or second-time film teams who seek coaching and advice. They must have shooting and a first editing completed ahead of time.
Docs in Progress welcomes film teams with a fine cut of their project searching for postproduction partners and distribution opportunities.
