Training Possibilities

Knowing that many of our readers are looking for ways to improve their skills, meet colleagues, develop their documentary projects… here is (below) a link to a very useful Guide to “Training and Networks”, published by Creative Europe MEDIA, giving good information on the many possibilities offered for workshops and seminars co-financed by the publisher.

Let me just mention one that I know very well, as I have been working for Archidoc that has directors (and not producers which is otherwise mostly the case) as the main target.

Archidoc is a European training workshop focused on the development of documentary film projects using archives. This workshop of three residential sessions lasting three to eight days provides participants with the professional and artistic tools to bring their project to a successful conclusion, develop their professional know-how and reach the international documentary market. The first session focuses on defining and fine-tuning the main narration choices, the second on preparing the film’s professional file and trailer, and the third on presenting the projects to potential professional partners (broadcasters, festivals, co-producers). Between sessions, participants dialogue with the tutors, according to a pre-established schedule.

The key target groups for this course are European documentary film directors with a project using archive materials, and their producers…
