Sabine Bubeck-Paaz appointed Head of Studies at ESoDoc


ZeLIG School for Documentary, organizer of ESoDoc – European Social Documentary, is appointing Sabine Bubeck-Paaz as new ESoDoc Head of Studies, starting from November 2014.

Sabine Bubeck-Paaz

Sabine Bubeck-Paaz succeeds Hugh Purcell, who has been ESoDoc’s Head of Studies from its start in 2004 and the main responsible for shaping the workshop as it is today. 

Sabine Bubeck-Paaz has been collaborating with ESoDoc since the first edition. Initially it was through her role as Commission Editor for the final pitching event, but from 2006 she became one of the tutors and a ‘core teacher’.

Sabine Bubeck-Paaz has been working as Commissioning Editor for ZDF since 1990. With the start of ARTE in 1991, she became member of the ZDF department "Das Kleine Fernsehspiel” and since 2000 of the department "ARTE Thema", where she has been responsible for the development and production of Theme Evenings, documentary films and cross-media projects. Since the beginning of her career, Sabine has been working on many film projects, which dealt with human interest, culture and investigative socio-political issues.

Recognizing the increasing relevance of cross-media, she promoted the development within ZDF/Arte of cross platform stories and innovative interactive projects.

Next to her new role as ESoDoc Head of Studies, Sabine Bubeck-Paaz will continue her profession as commissioning editor and as deputy head of the ARTE THEMA department at ZDF.
