What people say about dok.incubator:

‘An incredible and unique workshop, made of amazing tutors –editors, filmmakers, producers– that made my year, maybe changed my life, and definitely helped The Disappearance of my Mother to get to final completion. I strongly suggest anybody who has a project in post production to apply!‘
– Beniamino Barrese, director of ‘The Disappearance of My Mother’ (2019 Sundance – World Cinema Documentary Competition), Participant 2018

‘If you have a film on rough cut stage, I highly recommend this workshop. It’ll be good for your project, but most importantly - it’ll be good for you!‘
– Matti Näränen, editor of "Själö", Participant 2019

‘Do it – it’s magic!’
– Pia Hellenthal, director of ‘Searching Eva’ (2019 Berlinale – Panorama, Documentary Award nomination)

‘dok.incubator has proven an invaluable resource for fresh talent and surprising, unconventional storytelling approaches. In our experience attending, we've observed a workshop model that's both rigorous and incredibly intimate. The hands-on approach from their tutors and mentors help cultivate some of the most exciting nonfiction stories out there.‘
– Harry Vaughn, programmer of Sundance Film Festival – Guest 2018, 2019
