Twelve for the Future 2017/2018 - Part II
January 30 - 31, 2018. 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 decision makers.
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.
The second sesssion of Twelve for the Future is held in conjunction with DocPoint - Helsinki Documentary Film Festival, which takes place from 29 January - 4 February 2018.
