Starting from 2016 until 2018, Open Doors is exploring 8 countries in South Asia: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The Open Doors Hub is an international coproduction platform for 8 selected projects from throughout the South Asian region. The selected project teams will be introduced to European or/and international professionals in order to encourage international collaborations, mostly in terms of coproduction, funding and distribution but also of professional training. Their six-day tailored made program alternates alternating pitching coaching, group discussions, one-to-one meetings and networking activities with Industry decision makers and Festival guests.

On the last day, a professional jury grants either development, production or post-production support to a few winning projects, the biggest award being the Open Doors Grant amounting to 50.000 CHF. 
The CNC and ARTE will offer a bourse of respectively 8'000 and 6'000 Euros.
