ZAGREBDOX PRO: DOX OF WAR - CALL FOR ENTRIES 2023 credit: ZagrebDox Pro

    ZAGREBDOX PRO is a five-day program (March 27 to 31, 2023) that brings together documentary filmmakers in pursuit of excellence through analysis of their submitted projects, along with recommendations and suggestions for their further development. Additionally, the program offers one-year online mentoring, case studies, group and individual discussions, masterclass lectures, special film screenings and round tables.

    The area of special interest will be defined in advance every year, and in 2023 the focus is on documentaries about the war. The goal of the workshop is an in-depth investigation of the question: How to film a war?


    At carefully designed events, participants will exchange knowledge and experience with top experts from the field of documentary filmmaking as well as from other relevant fields. Directors and producers can participate in the programs.

    ZagrebDox Pro strives to assist the participants with:

    • working individually on developing their projects with renowned documentary film experts
    • getting a “second opinion” from experts in the fields not directly connected, but close to documentary filmmaking
    • learning through case studies of successful documentaries
    • networking with colleagues from different backgrounds
    • finding out about the latest technological developments
    • promoting their projects during production and upon completion


    Creative documentary projects in different stages of development and production are called to apply. Projects from Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy, Kosovo, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, Slovenia and Serbia, dealing with the region thematically and/or those in search for a co-producer from one of these countries, have an advantage in the selection.

    ZagrebDox Pro Terms & Conditions can be found here.

    You can apply for the workshop by filling out and sending the online application form.


    Application deadline for project entries is January 31, 2023.
