Documentary Films Take A Firm Place Amongst
Popular Genres Internationally With The Consumer

Big Pacific has its World Premiere TV Screening at MIPDoc
Worldwide Documentary films are asserting an ever-growing and strong presence, with the consumer hungry for informed and enlightening analysis based on facts unknown of subjects that are affecting the world we live in, from the war in Syria, to the yet unexplored majesty and mystery of the Pacific Ocean. The festival exposure and theatrical release of documentaries underscore the growing appetite of the genre on the big and small screen, and streaming platforms worldwide. MIPDoc starting today celebrates its 20th year. The event, the first of its kind at the time, was innovated as a two day pre-MIPTV event to accommodate and facilitate the screenings of product for buyers. MIPDoc now boasts an expected and record attendance of 600 global buyers, all focused on documentaries, formats, and coproduction opportunities, with the screening booths solidly booked over the period.
The showcasing and world Premiere of TV series over the two day event are an ongoing success. Big Pacific, a ground-breaking series exploring the mysteries of planet's greatest ocean, makes its World Premiere Screening at MIPDoc today presented by ZDF Enterprises (18:00 - 19:00 in the Grand Theatre). The ambitious project is produced by New Zealand-based producer of factual television NHNZ, with coproduction partners from the US, Europe and Asia, that include PBS, CCTV9, ZDF, ZDF Enterprises, Discovery International, Channel 9 and Arte. The four one-hour episodes and the making-of special were shot in 4KHD on a substantial budget. ZDF Enterprises is handling worldwide distribution.
