Docs by the Sea

Docs by the Sea is the only international forum that focuses on creating a supportive ecosystem for documentary films in Southeast Asia. It is initiated and organised by The Ministry of Tourism and Economy Creative of the Republic of Indonesia and In-Docs, a non-profit organisation committed to foster an open society through documentary films.

Held for the first time in 2017, through this forum, documentary projects in Southeast Asia have obtained international co-productions, broadcast commissions, acquisitions, cash fundings, distributions, festival selections, and opportunities to pitch at other international forums.

This year, Docs by the Sea is presenting Docs by the Sea Accelerator 2021: Digital Edition, an intensive and intimate documentary lab with three main categories of Storytelling Lab, Editing Lab and Creative Producing Lab followed with pitching sessions to a panel of documentary organisation and industry representatives. Participants will also have individual meetings with international producers for a potential collaboration.

Docs by the Sea Accelerator 2021: Digital Edition will be held from 16 August – 4 September 2021.
