For the first time a session of ESoDoc – European Social Documentary – promoted by ZeLIG School for Documentary and supported by EU’s Creative Europe Programme – will take place from October 15 till 21 in Lithuania, thanks to the partnership with the Lithuanian Film Centre and in collaboration with the human rights festival Inconvenient Films.
Within this context, ESoDoc is offering to Lithuanian filmmakers the chance to participate to the full session and to the final public pitch. The offer includes 1 place for a participant with project, and 2 places for participants without a project. ESoDoc – European Social Documentary is the training initiative for media professionals and “cross-thinkers” who want to increase impact and outreach of their documentary films and cross-media projects by developing new storytelling skills, networking over different platforms, discovering new forms of team building, of producing and financing and new distribution strategies.
At ESoDoc participants explore new funding and distribution strategies, both on traditional channels as on new media channels, such as the web and the new crowdfunding platforms. ESoDoc trains its participants to be better equipped for the challenges of the changing audiovisual market, and enables the professionals to better engage audiences across different platforms and maximize the outreach and impact of the projects.
Deadline for application: Monday September 25, 2017. Application form can be found here.
