Networking Days 2020


The Networking Days are going hybrid! Join us on location in Halle (Saale) and via livestream on 17 & 18 October


While the factual industry is experiencing significant change, adapting its practices to the current circumstances, these special times also open doors for transformation and new opportunities.

Therefore, on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of Documentary Campus, the Final Pitching of the Masterschool aka the Networking Days will take place at our SILBERSALZ Science and Media Festival offering a programme filled with pitches, films, art works and performances.

On the first day of the Networking Days we will present projects developed at our Masterschool and Campus Latino training programmes as well as selected Documentary Campus member projects. The second day of the pitching will focus on science presenting the SILBERSALZ Science & Media Pitch.

REGISTRATION

The current situation in Germany allows us to make a first step back into the world of physical events. We will ensure the protection of our guests and team through a professional safety and hygiene concept, that we already successfully implemented at the SILBERSALZ events in June 2020. However, due to the current situation we will reduce the number of participants on location this year. Instead, an interested audience will have the opportunity to witness the pitching via livestream.

Register now for free and join us on location in Halle (Saale).
