Rough Cut Screenings DocsBarcelona 2017

DocsBarcelona holds the Rough Cut Screenings

3 documentaries at a rough cut stage will be presented privately to a selected group of producers, directors, consultants, sales agents and distributors. The goal is to generate creative and constructive discussions that will favour the projects’ entry into the international market.
