Twelve for the Future is a project driven co-production workshop for Nordic documentary producers and directors. The workshop is aimed at developing projects for international co-production, establishing a professional network for the participants and connecting Nordic producers, directors and financiers.

Tutors at the first workshop will be Mikael Opstrup (EDN Head of Studies, Denmark), Magnus Gertten (director, Sweden), Iikka Vehkalahti (producer, Finland) and Kristine Ann Skaret (producer, Norway).
