A 2-day seminar for filmmakers and producers with documentary projects on minority issues.
Pitching of documentary proposals has become a must in Europe, specially for the young filmmakers and producers who still have to establish themselves on the market. Films on minority issues, like Roma, refugees or immigration can be tricky to sell: there’s many films on the market already. How to stand out with your project?
The 2-day seminar will examine the different parts of a pitch: the written presentation, the visual materials, the verbal pitch. The special focus of this seminar is on projects about minority subject matters, f.e. Roma issues, human right issues, social justice etc. How to get international funding on topics, that have already been covered in several programmes. What makes your film interesting also for the international audience? We’ll have a team of international experts to share their secrets.
If you are working on a documentary project on minority issues, you also have the opportunity to send your project to us beforehand. We won’t develop the project during this seminar (a workshop for that will be organized in November) but we might use your project as an example in the general sessions
