DocCelerator is a series of stand alone documentary workshops launched by Paradiddle Pictuctures in May 2020. There are three different editions of the workshop. Each one is covering specific needs, at different stages of project development and production. Pick the one that fits best to your needs. Besides these standard versions, we also make DocCelerator On Demand fitting the needs of local, regional or national film organisations. 

The three versions, their aims and the dates planned are:


Prepare to pitch to funders, broadcasters and distributors.

Dates: September 27-29, 2021. Deadline: September 1.


Get rough cut feedback and strengthen your distribution.

Dates: October 27-28, 2021. Deadline: September 30.


Define and develop key structural narrative elements of your story.

Dates: November 10-11, 2021. Deadline: October 12.


All DocCelerator versions are project-based workshops taking place online. The length of each workshop are 2-3 days and can accommodate 6 selected project teams, depending on the specific version.

If you are in doubt that DocCelerator is helpful for the improvement of your next documentary project, do not take our word for it. These are some of the reactions we have had from participants so far: 

"I loved DocCelerator and came out of it with an infinitely clearer idea of the film I have to make."


"Highly recommend this workshop! It really helped us to clarify the film's direction and structure."


"I was part of the 3rd edition of the DocCelerator Workshop with Ove Rishøj Jensen and Geoffrey Smith and it was an incredible experience. If you have a project in development, don't hesitate and apply for the workshop."


"It's wonderful that someone makes such training programs."
