DocMontevideo Campus

Campus DocM is a program of activities aimed at film and audiovisual communication students from Latin America that will serve as an introduction to industry events in general and to the documentary market in particular, with the aim of providing tools for the best performance and development of new industry professionals in this type of event.

The DocMontevideo Campus seeks to focus on expanding the spectrum of what documentary creation can be: the funds, the distribution and promotion circuit, market practices, the production process, and provide tools to answer the questions: what is a documentary?, what is a pitch?, how to present a film to a festival?, how to apply to the different types of funds?

All Campus activities will be held virtually between July 18 and 29. In the case of activities in other DocM spaces that are held live, their recordings will be available for 30 days.
