Dox in Vitro 2018

September 10 - 11, 2018.  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 submission deadline is 10 August 2018.

Dox in Vitro (documentary projects in a test tube) is a two-day seminar and workshop focused on development of documentary projects organised with its main partner, European Documentary Network (EDN). It is designed for up and coming producers and documentary filmmakers from Central Europe. Following the event, EDN will offer further opportunities for a select group of project team members to present their work at other forums throughout Europe.


Seminar (September 10, 2018)

This one-day seminar will focus on making documentaries for the regional and international market. Through presentations by leading international experts and case studies on recent internationally successful documentaries this day will spotlight essential considerations for telling stories that can travel. This includes both the creative approaches for telling documentaries and considerations around the European documentary market.


Workshop (September 11, 2018)

The workshop is your opportunity to develop your documentary project under guidance from leading international documentary experts. You will receive input and feedback on essential consideration for the 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.
