The 6th Pitching of the International Academy of the Document Dragon Forum opens in nearly a week!

The last session will be held at the 51. Krakow Film Festival between the 25th and the 29th of May in the MANGGHA Centre of Japanese Art and Technology, in Krakow.

Project selection was especially difficult this year, dues to large amount of applications.
