Equally appealing is a focus on Documentary Africa, the short films selected within the First Window line-up, the traditional Popular Front(s) section, and the professional ParisDOC sidebar. The latter will notably be hosting round tables (exploring the visibility of works and author-producer pairings, among other topics) on Tuesday 15 March, the European Heritage Documentary Meetings on 18 March and a Work in Progress session running 15 to 17 March, with 9 feature films set to be screened, including Navire Europe by Marina Deak, Ciompi by Agnès Perrais, De part et d’autre by Matthieu Chatellier, Otro Sol by Francisco Rodriguez Teare (steered by France, Belgium and Chile) and Río Rojo by Guillermo Quintero (produced by Colombia and France).
