ECFA’s effort to create a stronger profile for the ECFA Doc Award is paying off. With the first edition launched at the doxs! festival (Duisburg) in 2016, this year’s nominations for the Doc Award will be given in three festivals, with Filem’on (Brussels) and the Olympia Film Festival (Pyrgos) also organising a competition for documentaries for young people and host an ECFA Doc Jury. With even more festivals planning a documentary competition in 2018 it seems like the ECFA Doc Award is ready for a steady growth.

That is why the rules and regulations for the ECFA Doc Award were recently fine-tuned and published on the ECFA website.
