In partnership with Bekraf, Docs By The Sea invited 29 projects from 8 countries to attend a story development and editing workshop on 13 - 28 August 2020 that was held virtually online due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. On top of the Docs By The Sea lab, this year we also introduced Fresh Wave, featuring the work of our Docs By The Sea Alumni. Through the workshop, participating filmmakers received mentorship in developing their story from 11 international mentors. Along with the lab and pitch session, Docs By The Sea conducted 5 public webinars featuring Industry professionals and filmmakers from Taiwan, South Korea, Japan and France.
