"Wild at heart.
An experiment in courage"

Tuesday, 18 October, 10:00 - 13:00
Ring Café Leipzig

With invitation only!

Big changes in the media market heavily influence the structure and prospects of the documentary business regarding financing, production and distribution. All of us, across the industry, are part of these changes.

We at DOK Leipzig constantly ask ourselves what is needed to help documentary professionals better focus on the creative process, follow their ideas and make courageous decisions. How can we help creatives reinforce their motivation, attitude and perspective?

We concluded that a new format was necessary. This has taken us and will hopefully take you on an adventure too: We provide an open room and invite documentary experts and newcomers, filmmakers, producers, sales agents, commissioning editors and funders to get together and meet in equality. We want you to open your mind and heart, change your perceptions and rediscover your true enthusiasm for documentary.

“Wild at Heart” follows the world-café principal: A series of questions on the nature of courage will be staged at round-tables. We want to stimulate new, true, bold and creative thoughts on what we are all working for – to make audacious and courageous films.
