In response to the massive disruption brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the 31st edition of Sunny Side of the Doc and the 4th edition of PiXii Festival will move to an exclusively online event, taking place from 22 to 25 June and streamed from La Rochelle, France.

In an interconnected world, this year’s Connected Edition aims to provide the viable funding opportunities, valuable market intelligence, and networking services Sunny Side of the Doc is known for.

This unique platform will enable all major industry stakeholders to connect for a series of tailor-made activities including pitch sessions, one-to-one meetings and also a significant programming of video resources and topical webinars designed by top-level experts to foster extensive interactions with professional peers.

The Sunny Side of the Doc Connected Edition is structured around three elements that are the foundation of this international marketplace’s DNA:

- Content First: showcasing quality-driven documentary projects and programmes through pitches and an online screening library;
- Trends and Industry Focused: having a finger on the pulse for the lastest trends and practices to help beat the crisis;
- Community Driven: strengthening our real-world ties and maintaining international collaboration between talent, production companies, distributors, broadcasters and cultural centres.

All delegate passes are now streamlined into a new All Access - Connected Pass at a flat-rate fee of €200 (excl. tax) for the entire offering.
