During the industry days of Moldox Festival B2B DOC has arranged today a master-class for Moldovan filmmakers on how to bring their documentary film stories to the international film market. All of them were… More young and inexperienced but very creative and eager to make films for the international audience. Hjalmar Palmgren talked about how important it is to work on the development of film stories and what to expect from the decision-makers when you come to the serious pitching sessions or co-production markets in Europe. Dragos Turea told about his personal experience of developing the documentary project Grădina Sovietică / The Soviet Garden. Its international premiere took place at Sarajevo film festival last August. Dragos told about all the difficulties he had to face on his way while making this film. We watched his trailers in different stages and could witness the process of the project development. We encourage more Moldovan filmmakers to join B2B Doc and get their film stories developed with us.
If you are attending Moldox Festival in Cahul,Moldova, come this Saturday to the master-class that B2B Doc is arranging during the festivals industry program. Hjalmar Palmgren, Dragos Turea and I will talk about reaching the international documentary film market with your film projects.

The Baltic Sea Forum for Documentaries in Riga, one of the most prestigious and effective film financing/co-production events for Eastern-European documentaries, is over. Out of 25 selected projects this year,… More 8 were from the B2B Doc family. Two of them got awards from the three Forums partners. Our project participants did their best at the forum. All projects have been very well received by the decision-makers and one-on-one meetings were full of discussions and questions from them. Many thanks to Zane Balcus and her wonderful team for their great job, perfect organization of the event and warm, friendly atmosphere in Riga!
