Nordisk Panorama Partners with DOK.Incubator for the Film Launch

Nordisk Panorama is happy to announce our new partnership with DOK.Incubator. In 2016 Nordisk Panorama, well known for its excellent industry activities, strong projects at the Forum and international reach, will host the final presentation of the DOK.Incubator films.

With Nordisk Panorama taking place 16-21 September 2016, the almost finished documentaries presented in Malmö will be able to meet the deadlines for IDFA, DOK Leipzig, the Berlinale and Sundance.

DOK.Incubator is a well-established rough-cut stage workshop with a unique format and impact on filmmakers and their films. It offers individual mentorship for eight selected documentary projects focusing on dramaturgy, distribution and audience building. DOK.Incubator has been around for 4 years only, but, even so, last year films developed at the workshop appeared at Sundance, Locarno, Hot Docs, Nyon, Karlovy Vary, DOK Leipzig and finally IDFA with 6 films in 3 competitions.

Partnering with DOK.Incubator as a broad international platform, Nordisk Panorama will be providing the Nordic industry with new, exclusive stories and strategic partners for future projects, coming from around the world. DOK.Incubator brings its international network and particularly its strong links to Central and Eastern Europe and good access to North American territory.
