Doc Around Europe network meeting and visit at the FIPADOC festival

At the end of January, two of our colleagues attended our partner festival, FIPADOC in France.

Hanna Kádár participated as a jury member of the Young Europeans Jury which evaluated the European Stories section of the festival.

Fanni Somlyai attended the Industry Days' European Festivals Keynote roundtable where we highlighted our plans for the next two years in the Doc Around Europe Network. Together with our partner festivals, FIPADOC, Dokfest München, DocsBarcelona and MakeDox, we will be working on activities dedicated to emerging talents thanks to a grant by Creative Europe.

The aim of the network linking the five European documentary film festivals is to promote the circulation of documentary films and film professionals, especially young talents, from the regions represented by each festival, and to facilitate the sharing of experience and the international exposure of the filmmakers and their works, as well as their projects in different stages of development.
