The project creates a new platform for meetings of film professionals with an emphasis on documentary cinematography.

The following selection criteria should be met to apply for the programme:

- at least one realized film (fiction or documentary, mid-length or feature) which has entered theatrical distribution or has been screened at a festival etc.
