DOX IN VITRO is aimed at young producers and documentary filmmakers who will be introduced to the „real world“ of the European film market and documentary films. The workshop will focus on the development of documentaries under the guidance of experienced tutors and emphasize the role and need of co-productions in today's documentary sector.
DOX IN VITRO is a two-day workshop focused on development of documentary projects. It is designed for up and coming producers and documentary filmmakers from Central Europe.
Through presentations by leading international experts the event will spotlight essential considerations for telling stories that can travel. This includes both the creative approaches for telling documentaries and considerations around the European documentary market.
DOX IN VITRO is your opportunity to develop your documentary project by working in a small group under guidance from leading international documentary experts. You will receive input and feedback on essential consideration for the further development including the narrative structures, visual style and potential financing opportunities.
The two day DOX IN VITRO workshop will take place on September 8 - 9, 2020 at the Hotel Park Avenue, Piestany, Slovakia. The workshop is taking place in connection with the International Film Festival Cinematik.
