Twelve for the Future 2018/2019
September 20 – 23, 2018. Skåne, Sweden
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 producers/directors and relevant decision makers.
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, feedback and new contacts.
The workshop programme is divided in 2 parts. The 1st part takes place September 20 - 23 in Southern Sweden and focuses on the development of the participants' projects. Again this year Twelve for the Future has joined forces with Nordisk Panorama Forum for Co-financing of Documentaries and an observer seat has been reserved for all interested workshop participants for the two pitching days on September 24 - 25. Furthermore a discount on the observer seat will be available for all participants who are newcomers to the Forum. Nordisk Panorama Forum for Co-financing of Documentaries takes place in Malmö, Sweden.
The 2nd part of Twelve for the Future takes place end of January 2019 in Helsinki, Finland in conjunction with the DocPoint Documentary Film Festival. Here the participants have individual meetings with decision makers from Nordic TV channels and Film Institutes.
In the period between the two sessions, the participants can be in contact with EDN for further guidance on their project development and presentations.
Twelve for the Future has for many newcomers in the field of international documentary filmmaking proved to establish a valuable network among Nordic colleagues and financiers.
