The two-part programme features a three-day development workshop in Southern Sweden in September and an additional session in January 2019 in Finland, which includes individual meetings with financiers from Nordic TV channels and film institutes. Tutors of previous editions included renowned and experienced individuals from the world of documentary filmmaking, and we again look forward to welcoming a cutting-edge team of experts and panelists for the next edition of "Twelve for the Future".
