With the aim of proposing a space in which to meet and talk about documentary film, NaparDocs was created in 2018 by NAPAR, an association of audiovisual production companies in Navarre. This open meeting has been growing in the festival, maturing and extending beyond the territory of Navarre.
Specifically, it is a space for debate around three working tables on screenwriting and directing, film production and distribution, with dialogues moderated by guests invited by the festival. Based on these three presentations, NaparDocs gives us the opportunity to exchange experiences and create links with other professionals.
One of the new features this year will be a networking session with the aim of promoting co-productions and creating cross-border bridges through the Zinema Zubiak project, an initiative that NAPAR shares with Ibaia, an association of independent audiovisual production companies in the Basque Country, and Zukugailua, an organisation for film creation in the Northern Basque Country.
