Global Doc Days @ SXSW 2008

Global Doc Days @ SXSW 2008

We’ve teased details on “Global Doc Days” for a few months now, but some firm details are available to share. We hope you enjoy checking out this very cool addition to the SXSW Film Conference. From a recent announcement:

The SXSW 2008 Film Festival will launch its inaugural international conference event, GLOBAL DOC DAYS, on March 8 in the Austin Suite of the Austin Convention Center. This event is open only to SXSW Film, Gold, and Platinum Registrants. GLOBAL DOC DAYS is an initiative to build on our strong commitment to documentary film by opening the door to a more international market and showcase. National cinema agencies and international film festivals from eight countries have been invited to screen some the most innovative nonfiction programming from their respective countries. Audiences will be offered a wide variety of documentary/factual programming, and TV-ready docs from all over the world. The format is simple: Each participating nation will have a morning (10:30-1:30) or afternoon (2:30-5:30) slot in an intimate screening room setting, from March 8 through March 11. This event will only be open to registered film, gold and platinum badge holders.
