Ever since 2008, Doc Alliance has been organising an international award intended especially for first-time directors. The Doc Alliance Selection Award helps up-and-coming filmmaking talents to put their name on the documentary map, providing a prize of EUR 5,000 to support their future projects. In 2016, Doc Alliance again nominated 7 outstanding films that will be vying for the 9th annual Doc Alliance Selection Award. The name of the winning title will be announced on August 7, 2016 during an official ceremony at the Locarno International Film Festival.

Cross the ruins of the factory, remembering repeated gestures. Hear the voices of workers gathered in the yard and the silence of unplugged machines. Go through the city, in the mud of construction sites, leaving in search of work. Strike the stone and the brick, watch things slowly collapsing. Spot places, get there, change the locks and turn the electricity on. Gather at night, light a fire, build new shelters. Telling always the same story: the one that keeps men standing.
