Producer Enrico Pacciani at Sunny Side of the Doc 2017

Enrico Pacciani had received the Sunny Side award, thus gaining the possibility to pitch at Sunny Side of the Doc 2017, within the Arts & Culture category where it was received in a very enthousiastic way.

Today, we’re very happy to announce that the MIADOC prize goes to a project in development selected from Sunny Side’s Social and Human Interest pitch, a theme that will be the highlight of next edition of MIADOC together with Investigative Journalism.

The project which has been selected to be presented in Rome next October is Abortion: the pro-life threat, by Andrea Rawlins-Gaston and Alexandra Jousset and produced by Capa Presse. An urgent and timely investigative documentary about the regression of the right to abortion in many European countries which shows how civil rights can never be taken for granted.

The winning project will be automatically selected for next MIADOC pitching Forum and get free accomodation for one of the pitching team members who will present the project in Rome.
Next MIADOC will take place from 19 and 23 October and will have a focus on investigative content.
