DOCroads 2015: Discount of 25% for EDN Members
DOCRoads is a project driven, creative documentary workshop and training initiative focusing on documentaries for international audiences while maintaining a special focus on the Chinese market. The next session will take place from 8 to 22 October 2015 in Tinos, Greece and EDN Members are eligible for a 25% discount on the participation fee of the course.
DOCroads is specially designed for emerging film professionals from Europe and China, consisting of two phases with 7 days each of residential seminars and a workshop (14 days in total). Both phases are headed, guided, coordinated and constantly supervised by highly experienced tutors, who provide feedback, advice and suggestions. Each group has to complete a film on a given subject, within three shooting days. The films will be edited and completely post-produced on location. At the end of the workshop, the films will be presented and evaluated in a non-competitive way, analyzed in depth by both, tutors and participants.
Each participant gains an inside view of all stages of an international documentary production and learns how to produce/co-produce for the world market. Interdisciplinary collaboration and intensive teamwork, combined with constant tutorial guidance and supervision, help participants improve their co-production skills, understand the international market and expand their creativity, so that they become fully equipped for the challenges of a demanding and competitive market. Each participant will get the chance of getting to know the Chinese documentary film market and develop personal ties with a new generation of Chinese Filmmakers.
Participants will further receive a Certificate of attendance, co-issued by DOCRoads and the University of the Aegean (http://www.aegean.gr). Both films will be screened in November at the International Gold Panda Documentary Festival in Chengdu, Sichuan, China (http://www.sctvf.com/sys/en).
The whole course of 14 days costs 1,880 EUR including hotel accomodation, breakfast, a second meal a day, tuition and equipment. For members of EDN, the costs are 1,410 EUR (25% discount).
