Application deadline for ‘myDEER’ documentary development workshop


‘myDEER’ is a four-day-training course developing creative documentary projects coming from all over Europe but with a special focus on the life and culture of the V4 countries, being Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary. Application deadline is 16th April 2010.

myDEER Documentary Project Development Workshop will be held in Budapest, between the 22nd and 26th June 2010, within the frames of Dialektus European Documentary and Anthropological Film Festival.


myDEER is an intensive training course for professional filmmakers with two internationally acknowledged heads of studies, Tue Steen Müller and András Péterffy, and several individual tutors. Its goal is to foment international co-productions, especially with the participation of Czech, Slovak, Polish and Hungarian filmmakers and producers, to create a professional network and help filmmakers enter the European documentary film scene.


The course brings together the insights of regional film traditions: the new trends in Hungarian and Slovak filmmaking, the Czech humour and the Polish cinematographic style to produce innovative works for the contemporary European documentary market.


Who can apply?

The workshop is for European creative documentary projects in development or production phase that are shot in at least two of the V4 countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary), or projects where the culture or everyday life of at least two of the V4 countries are represented.

A condition for application is that both director and producer of the project have to be present during the four-day intensive training course, and both have to be fluent in English.


The training finishes with a pitching forum in front of festival participants and guests, tutors and invited filmmakers and producers from the region – in the spirit of the course’s motto: “Pitching is not (just) raising money, but it is the best project development tool.”


Application deadline is 16th April 2010. Selection and notification of participants will be done by 30th April 2010.
