Ket & Doc Pitchings
Under the Ket & Doc label, eight filmmakers recently developed seven short children's documentaries. These young talents will soon be in need of a producer. JEF, Ketnet and VAF lend them a helping hand by organizing a online pitch session on February 10, during the JEF festival.
What is Ket & Doc?
Ket & Doc was launched in 2018 as a joint initiative by JEF, Ketnet and the Flemish Audiovisual Fund (VAF) and is now in its third edition. In this trajectory, directors of eight documentary projects go through a process of workshops, organized by VAF, to make them more acquainted with the genre and with the young target audience.
During the JEF festival, the brand new documentaries from the previous edition will have their premiere before they are screened on Ketnet. From then on, the films will also be available for the international market.
For participants in the current edition, the JEF festival marks the completion of their training programme. Now the projects will be pitched online to a group of professionals, who will decide which five films will actually go into production, with VAF support. The VAF and Ketnet provide five production grants of 40,000 euros per film.
Next year it will be their turn to celebrate their premiere during the JEF festival.Finally, these young audience documentaries will premiere during the JEF festival 2021, and will later on be broadcast on Ketnet.
