Ex Oriente Film 2018 - 1st Session

Mikael Opstrup at Ex Oriente

June 17 – 23, 2018. Trieste, Italy.

Ex Oriente Film is a workshop dedicated to the development and funding of creative documentary films in Central and Eastern Europe. Ex Oriente is driven by IDF – Institute of documentary Film in Prague with EDN Head of Studies Mikael Opstrup as one of four leading tutors.

At three residential workshops, participating directors work to develop the subject, narrative and the visual style of their projects, while producers learn more about the best ways to engage potential funders, and about the rules of the international market. Lectures and seminars on legal and financial issues in documentary filmmaking are an important feature throughout the programme. Ex Oriente Film culminates in the final pitching sessions of East European creative projects at the East European Forum.

This first workshop session is dedicated to the development of the selected documentary projects.

Participants are the directors and producers of 12 projects selected for the development program.
