Specific training and exchange activities will be carried out in person, focusing especially on national production and on generating meeting and celebration spaces.


After two years of virtuality, we meet again to talk and collectively reflect on documentary filmmaking in Uruguay.

We invite you to participate in two talks between filmmakers to learn about their perspective and experience as creators and continue enriching the documentary network.

They will be in person and free of charge in the CCE Auditorium.

The capacity is limited, so you have to complete the following form

Magdalena Schinca, editor of DELIA, and Guillermo Madeiro, editor of BOSCO, move a bar chat between two colleagues who esteem each other to a space with an audience.

We are a group of professionals whose objective is to promote training in assembly. The idea of grouping together arose in 2014, when Docmontevideo inaugurated the Rough Cut Lab.

In these meetings we seek to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, strengthen the links between assemblers and promote mutual help regarding the challenges presented by the profession.

Talk between Sergio De León and Analía Pollio

Date: July 23 | Hours: 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (UTC -3) | Modality: face-to-face | Venue: CCE Auditorium

In this meeting with Sergio and Analía, long-standing life partners and dear colleagues, we will talk about the creative process in the development of a documentary film. We will investigate the different stages of this process, the various ways of approaching reality depending on the theme, but also on our own circumstances and that of our protagonists.
Starting from the experience shared by both in “La intention del hummingbird” (directed by Sergio, photographed by Analía and premiered in 2019 at Doc Montevideo), we will delve into the role of a cinematographer in a documentary film and about how that role changes when we become directors/photographers.
At that point we will stop at the film that Analía is developing, Victor; and in the process that Sergio did during the filming of his latest film, Nieves flourished in stars, created with her neighbor Nieves in times of pandemic. On this occasion, Sergio becomes a photographer/director, moved by the need to leave a record of those days of confinement.
