This year, due to the health crisis, the 16th edition of the San Sebastián Lau Haizetara Documentary Co-Production Forum will be held virtually on the 24th and 25th September 2020.


talleresThe pitch preparation workshops are a compulsory training activity which offers the selected producers and directors an opportunity to work their documentary.

Two intensive days in which exhaustive preparatory work is undertaken for the presentation of both the storyline and the teaser. The potential of the project is maximised prior to its forthcoming presentation. In addition, guidelines are provided to perfect the individual meetings with the Commissioning Editors.

These workshops will take place on the two days before the pitching (22 and 23 September 2020). They will be given by specialised tutors, who work individually with each of them and also boost group work.

It is compulsory that both, the producer and the director of the project, attend these workshops. In case of co-production and/or co-direction, those who will attend, will be one producer and one director per project.


When: 22 and 23 September 2020 (all day)
Where: Online
