Twelve for the Future 2015/2016 - Part II
January 26-28, 2016. Helsinki, Finland.
Twelve for the Future is a project driven co-production workshop for young Nordic documentary producers and directors. The two-part workshop provides the network and knowledge to work professionally within the Nordic documentary sector.
The main focus of this second part of the workshop is project presentation and meetings with a selected group of Nordic financiers.
On the first day of the workshop participants catch up on the development of the participating projects since the first workshop part in September and they finalise their individual project presentations.
The second day is a full day of individual meetings with representatives from all the Nordic TV channels and film institutes. The participants receive useful feedback on their projects, create a network among the Nordic financiers and make themselves better known as filmmakers.
Twelve for the Future has for many newcomers in the field of documentary filmmaking proved to establish a useful network among colleagues and financiers.
Among earlier Twelve for the Future projects have been:
· Pine Ridge, directed by Anna Eborn and produced by Katja Adomeit for Adomeit Film, Denmark
· Ai Wei Wei – the Fake Case, directed by Andreas Johnsen and produced by Katrine A Sahlstrøm for Rosforth and Danish Documentary, Denmark
· A Separation, directed by Karin Ekberg and produced by David Herdies for Momento Film, Sweden
· My Godfather, his Thai Bride and Me, directed by Wille Hyvönen and produced by Elina Pohjola for Pohjola-filmi Oy, Finland
· Light Fly, Fly High, directed and produced by Susann Østigaard & Beathe Hofseth for Fri Film, Norway
The second sesssion of Twelve for the Future is held in conjunction with DocPoint - Helsinki Documentary Film Festival, which takes place from 25-31 January 2016
