Still from the series Bugs by Danish Documentary
(Serving as a case study for the workshop)

The EDN Documentary Series Workshop is a 1½-day workshop. On the first day, producer Sigrid Dyekjær (Danish Documentary) and sales agent Salma Abdalla (Autlook Film Sales) will share their experiences with the documentary series Bugs and other doc series. The participants will present their doc series projects and get feedback from the experts and tutors. On the second day, director Andreas Johnsen will share his experiences from the director’s perspective. Finally, the participating projects will be analyzed by Sigrid Dyekjær, with a focus on production and financing strategies.

We welcome entries from Nordic documentary professionals who would like to analyse their projects based on a successful case story (Bugs) and subsequently wish to develop their own approach to making a documentary series.
