Documentary Experts Meeting and Pitching Sessions

The 2023 Spring edition of the EBU Documentary Experts meeting and pitching sessions will take place in Munich at Amerikahaus (Karolinenpl. 3) on Thursday 4 and Friday 5 May 2023 in the framework of Dok.fest Munich, at the kind invitation of ARD/BR and Documentary Campus.

This time, we’re aiming at making this event even more inspirational than usual by adding more time for keynotes and discussions. Over two special sessions curated and moderated by AC COPPENS/The Catalysts, we'll focus on Audience behaviour and look into “what it takes to create a documentary the audience wants to see” and “the ways to make sure your documentary is the one being picked up out of the huge amount of offers available nowadays”. 

We will also have our pitching sessions running (for both Big 5 and regular projects).
