Stephanie von Lukowicz will conduct our pitching workshop for this edition.
The workshop will include a theoretical section that discusses how to present a project in the best possible manner to various investors: essential elements, audiovisual material, structure and timing of pitch, post-pitch negotiations and further aspects related to the presentation.
Individualised work on each project will be conducted in the more practical section in order to identify strengths and weaknesses and prepare each participant to make the presentation that best suits his or her personality and project. A dynamic group-work methodology is used in which everyone has the possibility to take advantage of the example and experience of others.

MiradasDocs Market was a great opportunity to meet some really exciting filmmakers and hear about upcoming projects from around the world. The pitching session was extremely well run. Thank you so much for your kind hospitality, everything was so well organised and I really enjoyed my time there. Such a treat to be in Tenerife for the first time! I hope that Dogwoof have the opportunity to be involved in the market again in future years.

Thanks a lot for the very friendly and nice market. It was indeed very productive for us. It was the first platform where the project was presented, analyzed by tutors and pitched and we got a lot of very useful feedback. Marijke Rawe was amazing and she did help us a lot in the pitch workshop.

“The producers and director of The only flower would like to thank the whole team of MiradasDoc Market for these fantastic days we had in Tenerife, in which we had time to learn, share, comment and learn some very interesting people. The treatment we received was exquisite, at a human level and at a professional level, and we urge everyone with a documentary film project to present it here and experience the Market of MiradasDoc. We will probably meet, because... we are definitely coming back. Thanks for everything and see you soon!”
