ZagrebDox PRO Training Programme: Call for Entries


ZagrebDox Pro is inviting documentary film directors, scriptwriters, cinematographers and producers to apply for the ZagrebDox PRO 2016 training programme, taking place from 22-26 February 2016 in Zagreb, Croatia. The deadline for entries is 1 December 2015.

ZagrebDox PRO is a five-day programme that includes a three day workshop and a pitching forum on the fourth day for twelve documentary projects in various phases of development and production. The last day of the session will focus on international collaboration and is dedicated to networking among experts and participants.

During the workshop, participants are going to have individual meetings with decision makers (TV editors, distributors, producers, representatives of film funds) and scriptwriting advisors. DOK Leipzig CEO Leena Pasanen and Stefano Tealdi, producer and director at Stefilm/Italy are the workshop facilitators and moderators of the Pitching Forum.

Taking part in ZagrebDox PRO is free of charge and attendants from outside Croatia can apply for a scholarship covering travel and accommodation expenses for the workshop (ZagrebDox Pro will provide up to six scholarships). Along with project teams, up to six observers can attend the closed sessions of ZagrebDox Pro.

The workshop aims at helping the participants successfully acquire the skills required for finding international partners to co-finance their films. The programme is for the selected projects to benefit from group and individual work with tutors Leena Pasanen and Stefano Tealdi and also from sessions open to the public during which knowledge and experiences are to be shared with high-end experts in documentary filmmaking and within the group. Directors and producers can take part in the workshop. In specific cases, they can be accompanied by a scriptwriter, cinematographer or editor. While teams of participants generally have two members, they can have up to three members.

More information about the workshop and how to apply can be found here. ZagrebDox Pro is co-financed by European Union's MEDIA Programme.
