History Inside/Out at Sunny Side of the Doc 2020
The 31st edition of Sunny Side of the Doc (22-25 June) will shine a light on the imminent opportunities of history-telling which tirelessly questions the collective memory, explores the hybrid trends of the genre, introduces new narrative forms, extends the use of archival materials, and is still of intense interest to international broadcasters, SVOD platforms and distributors.

Season’s greetings

Sunny Side says: “As the year 2019 draws to a close, we would like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to the industry leaders who have sponsored our activities and all Sunny Siders around the globe. Engaging with you and helping your stories to be told globally remains the most interesting part of what we do. Wishing you and your families a happy, healthy holiday season and all the best in 2020!
