Presentation: Don’t Let Them Lose Your Thread – How Digital Platform Could Help Your Film

French Institute in Prague, Štěpánská 35, Praha

Pitch the Doc & ShareDoc presentations of new digital tools 

Pitch the Doc is an online hub for documentary professionals, and a catalogue of curated documentary projects. It‘s an example of a web-based tool for professional preparation of “film packs”, and for continuous promotion and building the international recognition of documentary projects – how to use it to establish new contacts, and to maintain business relations initiated at pitchings and co-production meetings.

Are you a documentary maker aiming to support the protagonists involved in your film and to share their unique story? Then ShareDoc might be just for you. This new free-to-use platform offers a unique solution for making a change with your film. ShareDoc would like to be seen as a crossroad between everyone involved in the lifecycle of a documentary. Through setting up a profile on the platform and implementing simple QR code in your film credits, the viewers could directly donate to your cause, characters or otherwise contribute to the good thing.

The session will introduce both of these platforms and how you could join as a filmmaker, what are the benefits and what is needed to join. For more info visit and
