Docs for Sale

    The world’s premiere market for creative documentary cinema

    Getting your documentary made is difficult enough. Then there’s the business of selling it and eventually finding an audience for it. Established in 1996, Docs for Sale facilitates sales of high-end documentaries by gathering all interested parties under one roof, as well as bringing them together through the Docs for Sale Online services. Over the years, it has grown into one of the world’s premier markets for documentary cinema.

    Every year, more than 300 TV buyers, sales agents, distributors and festival programmers convene in Amsterdam to watch a selection of the very latest and best documentaries available to the international market. The Docs for Sale Lounge, Meet the Professionals sessions and various other activities offer great networking opportunities. Throughout the year, the market's catalogue is available to registered buyers through Docs for Sale Online.

    Docs for Sale 2017 takes place November 17 – 23.
