Ukrainian Doc Preview

Ukrainian Doc Preview is an opportunity for Ukrainian teams to present their full-length documentary projects in production and post-production to international festivals selectors and representatives of international funds, sales companies, and broadcasters. Pitch is usually held in the format of virtual round tables, each bringing together one project team, moderator and panel of experts. Project presentation takes up to 10 minutes, followed by a 20-minutes moderated discussion with experts.
