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.

In 2020 Doc Edge introduced Rough Cuts, a small market event specifically for factual film and series content nearing completion.

In 2021 Rough Cuts will expand to include a Lab and meetings with decision makers. Submissions will open in May.

Selected projects will attend a 2-day Lab in August. In September, invited decision makers will have the opportunity to view projects via a secure screening room, and will take meetings with projects individually.
