Together with Documentary Campus, we have been running the Crossing Borders programme since 2010. The programme has so far taken place in China (2010), Malaysia (2011 & 2013), South Korea (2012) and Indonesia (2015).

With Crossing Borders, we are targeting documentary professionals (authors, directors, producers) coming from Europe and Asia (special focus on Southeast Asia) with experience in their domestic market who wish to produce exciting documentaries for an international audience. Participants must have a good knowledge of English in speech and writing.
