Reading the trade press, one can't help but be curious and excited by the possibility of working with one of the international funds, whose films are often celebrated with awards, big festival premieres and strong audience reception. However, the most effective ways of making this happen can be mysterious.
Featuring some of DOK Leipzig's most charming international guests, this lively discussion will pull back the curtain on their processes, revealing all you need to know about their application process and selection criteria, the support they offer, to the advantages and drawbacks of working with new partners. Practical information and experiences will also be supplied by the organisations who closely work by their sides, making this an illuminating session covering multiple perspectives, for anyone looking to work with funds outside their home regions.
The session will be held in English.
Accredited guests welcome!
