Twelve for the Future 2010 / 2011
September 15 - 18, 2010, Denmark
Twelve for the Future is a project driven co-production workshop for young Nordic documentary producers and directors. The workshop aims at developing projects for international co-production, establishing a professional network for the participants as well as connecting Nordic talents and relevant financiers.
Twelve for the Future is focusing on project development, networking, presentation techniques and financing opportunities. Guided by experienced tutors and working in small groups, the workshop creates an informal atmosphere of knowledge and mutual inspiration, leading to encouraging discussions and feedback.
Twelve for the Future is divided in 2 parts.
The 1st part takes place on September 15 - 18, 2010 in Denmark and focuses on the development of the participants’ projects.
The 2nd part takes place late January 2011 in Helsinki, Finland in conjunction with the DocPoint Festival. Here the participants have individual meetings with financers from Nordic TV channels and Film Institutes.
In the period between the two sessions, the participants can be in contact with the tutors for further guidance on their project development.
Deadline for applying was June 15, 2010
