TEAM UP! New Alliances for the Documentary

Thursday, 20 October 2011, 11:00 – 13:00
Zeitgeschichtliches Forum Leipzig

The current transformation of the media market – whether you see it as a chance or challenge – sends everyone into unchartered territory, leading to new ways of locating and securing cooperative partnerships for the documentary industry.


What could „natural" synergies for the documentary industry be? And what kind of roles could potential partners such as NGOs, commercial enterprises and independent initiatives play for the financing, production and distribution of documentary films in the future? What are the interests of both partners and how can they be supported and protected? And what is needed to foster dialogue and mutual exchange between different industries?


We invite potential partners, colleagues and visionaries to talk about their experiences and vision for new possibilities and alliances with professionals from different backgrounds.
