Category Rules

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:

- Submissions are open to nonfiction works-in-progress features or series proposals in any genre or style.
- Submitted works-in-progress must be on track to be completed within 1-2 years, with at least 50% of their budget already in place.
- Note that this category is intended solely for works-in-progress with a projected completion date in 2019 or 2020. It is NOT intended for projects that are planning to be ready for exhibition at DOC NYC 2018, which should instead be submitted under the Features or Shorts categories, as appropriate.
- Projects will be selected based on their artistic merit, ability to engage an audience, and potential for success in the marketplace.


SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES:

- Filmmakers must submit a 2-5 minute video work sample, one-page project description, and simple budget.
- Video work samples must be submitted as Vimeo links or Withoutabox Secure Online Screeners only; DOC NYC does not accept DVDs or Blu-rays for this purpose.
- If you change your Vimeo link, or the password connected to it, make sure to email the updated information to submissions@docnyc.net.
- If your project is in a language other than English, your submission video work sample must be subtitled or dubbed in English, and the remaining submission materials - description and budget - must be in English.
- You may email your one-page project description and simple budget, as well as any questions about the Only in New York submission process, to submissions@docnyc.net.
- Applicants may submit more than one project to Pitch Perfect, but each project must be accompanied by its own Entry Form and Entry Fee.
- While the Entry Fee is non-refundable, Pitch Perfect applicants who are not selected will be provided with a discount on select DOC NYC Passes, to be determined.
- All entrants will be notified of their status on or around October 1, 2018 via e-mail.
- Please keep us informed of any changes regarding your contact information by emailing submissions@docnyc.net.
- Due to the number of submissions received, DOC NYC unfortunately cannot provide feedback on any entries.
- For questions regarding submissions, see DOC NYC FAQs or email submissions@docnyc.net with ENTRIES in the subject line.
