The Main Pitch is an opportunity to present your project for overseas expansion, including international co-productions, to domestic and international decision-makers (those involved in broadcasting and distribution). This is an opportunity for you to secure funding for your project and support for overseas broadcast, distribution, screening, and sales. Proposals are invited to address current events, social issues, history, natural science, travelogues, etc. (excluding travel guides). The best proposals will receive an award as well as a development grant.
Colors of Asia
"Colors of Asia” is an international co-production project initiated by Tokyo Docs. Projects are proposed by Asian documentary producers and Japanese producers who are familiar with the preferences of Japanese broadcasters and audiences. They will produce high-quality programs in collaboration with their counterparts in Japan to turn the proposals into broadcast projects. For Tokyo Docs 2020, ten teams that have been matched and developed together will be invited to participate in this project. A joint presentation of the project and Q&A session will be held for interested stakeholders.
Short Documentary Showcase
For the Tokyo Docs Short Documentary Showcase, which was started in 2017, eight films will be nominated from domestic and international documentaries each year. These films will be screened during Tokyo Docs and will be presented to decision makers (both broadcasting and streaming) in Japan and abroad with presentations and Q&As by the filmmakers themselves. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to further develop your work. This Short Documentary Showcase is held in cooperation with Yahoo Japan. Viewing short documentaries as an important means of communicating issues in daily life and in the world, we provide a platform for filmmakers to present their work and support their valuable communication.
