DOCalendar Deadlines in November 2015


Check out our brand new monthly service covering upcoming deadlines of events in the documentary sector. This monthly overview is based on our DOCalendar, a freely available online tool containing a vast collection of information about key industry events.

Our monthly overview of deadlines
for events of the documentary industry

The documentary world offers a whole variety of different workshops, pitching sessions and other doc industry events but it's sometimes challenging to keep track of them and especially their deadlines. That's why we provide a regular overview of documentary events that have a deadline to meet in the coming weeks. Next month's DOCalendar entries include deadlines for the Climate Action Contest, the Creative Europe Single Project support scheme, FIPA Industry and the Documentary Campus Master School. Stay updated with our overview of DOCalendar deadlines for November 2015!

You can also receive this overview every month by subscribing to our EDN Monthly Newsletter. In order to subscribe and receive the DOCalendar updates please visit this link.
