Rough Cuts

A market event for factual film and series projects nearing completion.

NZ is too far, too isolated, too small to support a market event for film or series content. But online, we’re no further away from international distributors and sales agents, festival programmers, TV commissioners than Berlin, Cannes, Sundance or Toronto.

This year Doc Edge introduces Rough Cuts, a small market event specifically for factual film and series content that’s nearing completion.

Attendance is by invitation only, and invitations to attend go to over 500 local and international acquirers and funders of content.

If you have a project that’s nearing completion, we’d love to help you promote it to people and companies who are looking for content. Each creator gets a 20-minute slot to introduce the project, and screen a selection of clips or an extended sequence for buyers.

Submissions are now CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who submitted their project.

Doc Edge Rough Cuts was held online on Tuesday 9 June 2020 (by invitation only).
