Each year, Cannes Docs partners with a number of festivals and organizations from all over the world to showcase curated selections of docs-in-progress in finalization stage, aiming to hit the circuit within a few weeks or months. These showcases of docs-in-progress are primarily designed for decision makers looking for fresh new titles, in particular festival programmers and sales agents. The projects are also generally in search of post-production funding or general gap financing, and sometimes still open to co-production opportunities.
From 22 to 25 June, Cannes Docs presents no less than 8 showcases, for a total of 32 projects. All the showcases are composed of four projects, each presented in the form of a video pitch and of a 10 minute sequence of the rough cut.
