In 2020, CIRCLE Women Doc Accelerator entered into a partnership with Cannes Docs - Marché du Film. This was the beginning of the CIRCLE Showcase @ Cannes Docs. Since then, each year we carefully select four CIRCLE alumni participants, who have the opportunity to pitch their docs-in-progress during Cannes Docs to festival programmers, sales agents, and other decision-makers.
CIRCLE projects showcased in Cannes have gone on to achieve great success after the Marché, becoming strong presences on the international festival circuit.
Previous winners include “Twice Colonized” by Lin Alluna, which won the Docs-In-Progress award in Cannes last year before premiering in Sundance and opening both CPH:DOX and Hot Docs; Ágnes Horváth-Szabó and Anna Nemet’s “Beauty of the Beast” (Nordisk Panorama Award 2020); and “Cent’anni” by Maja Prelog (IEFTA Docs-In-Progress Award 2021).
