Doc at Work

Started in 2013 as a laboratory of ideas for the audience, for filmmakers in training and for film professionals, Doc at Work takes place during the Festival dei Popoli - International Documentary Film Festival - proposing itself as an opportunity for educational growth and exchanges, both international and intergenerational, between documentary film professionals, with an articulated programme of screenings, meetings, debates, workshops, presentation of training projects, market-oriented events that encourage encounters between professionals, aspiring filmmakers, masters in Cinema, festival directors and other professionals in the field.

Doc at Work is composed of Doc at Work Future Campus (open access, dedicated to young directors from the main European film schools) and Doc at Work Industry (reserved to accredited professionals, where the presentation of projects under development by emerging authors from Italy will take place).
