Dox in Vitro 2017
September 11 - 12, 2017. Kursalon, Piestany, Slovakia
Dox in Vitro is aimed at young producers and documentary filmmakers who will be introduced to the „real world“ of the European film market and documentary films. The workshop will focus on the development of documentaries under the guidance of experienced tutors and emphasize the role and need of co-productions in today's documentary sector. The deadline for submitting projects is 11 August 2017.
Dox in Vitro is a two day event designed for up and coming producers and documentary filmmakers from Slovakia and neighbouring countries. The programme, organized in collaboration with EDN, consists of two parts: a one-day seminar for all participants and a workshop on the second day for production teams of selected projects. The seminar-programme is also open to participants without a project.
Seminar (September 11, 2017)
The seminar will focus on documentaries in the digital age. During the day essential themes for making documentary stories spanning several platforms will be highlighted. This include narrative approaches for telling documentaries across digital platforms and considerations for the future media landscape of public broadcasters.
Workshop (September 12, 2017)
The workshop presents an opportunity to develop your documentary project under guidance from leading international documentary experts. You will receive input and feedback on essential considerations for further development including the narrative structures, visual style and potential financing opportunities. This is done by working in a small group under creative guidance from international professionals.
