Industry Training Sessions

Through a variety of public industry training sessions, we tackle the most trending topics of our industry and discuss the challenges, developments and innovations taking place in the international non-fiction film market. Our industry training sessions are open to a broad professionally interested audience and offer outstanding networking opportunities. They typically consist of hands-on presentations, high-quality case studies and well-guided panel discussions as our programmes are carefully crafted by renowned programme curators from the industry.

Our industry training sessions take place in various European cities and often we team-up with international festivals and markets such as Mipdoc, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Sunny Side of the Doc, CPH:DOX or Dok.fest Munich to create lively platforms for knowledge and exchange.

Our sessions cover the following topics:

  • Story development, narrative strategies, project presentation and dramaturgy
  • Aesthetic demands on documentary films and directing for an international audience, with special reference to the use of modern technologies
  • (Co-)production and financing of documentary projects for the international market
  • Distribution, promotion and marketing of documentaries to an international audience
  • Use of digital technologies in the creation, production and distribution of audiovisual works
  • Strategic company management in an increasingly interwoven global industry
  • Guidance on special genres in the international non-fiction market
