Some stories need to reach audiences fast, and this new Doc/Fest initiative caters for producers with urgent and topical stories from around the world, wanting to connect with key platforms and commissioners. Doc/Dispatch in Marketplace will facilitate one-to-one meetings for selected filmmakers to connect with commissioners, including representatives from media organisations who showcase responsive, fast-turnaround content. Doc/Dispatch 10-Minute Meets is part of a larger programme, which also comprises the Doc/Dispatch Film Programme, and is supported by Deutsche Welle.
