DOCPOINT FINEST MARKET OFFERS INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONALS A VIEW OF FINNISH AND ESTONIAN DOCUMENTARY

In connection with DocPoint – Helsinki Documentary Film Festival, the DocPoint FINEST Market will be held for the first time in January-February 2022. The market presents the newest and best Finnish and Estonian Documentaries to international documentary professionals. Many of the market’s films are world premieres at the festival and have not been seen anywhere else before. Market films and projects can be viewed online by accredited professionals from 31 January to 13 February 2022.

DocPoint FINEST Market also has its own section for documentary films in progress, which the makers have the opportunity to present to international experts. These include a short introduction by the makers as well as an approximately 15-minute excerpt or compilation of clips from the film.

The market also features the films in DocPoint’s domestic competition, Finnish student films, as well as DocPoint Tallinn’s Estonian films. There will also be a small number of Finnish and Estonian fresh films outside of the festival program, as well as co-productions.

DocPoint FINEST Market is curated by DocPoint Festival and invites international actors in the documentary industry, such as festival programmers, distributors, sales agents and buyers of television channels and VOD platforms.

For more information on the market or the works-in-progress, contact our Market Coordinator Pieter-Jan Van Damme, pieterjan@docpoint.fi or our Artistic Director Kati Juurus, kati.juurus@docpoint.fi.
