Documentary Campus (Germany), the European Documentary Network (Denmark) and DMZ Docs (South Korea) are calling for project submissions to the international training initiative Crossing Borders. Applications are to be submitted by June 29, 2012.
Crossing Borders - The Eurasia-Pacific Documentary Training is an international training programme launched in 2010 by Documentary Campus and the EDN. It brings together filmmakers and documentary experts from both Europe and Asia, who are highly motivated to collaborate with each other across national borders, and have the ambition to enter each otherís markets both artistically and financially. In line with its name Crossing Borders travels between countries in the Asia-Pacific region Ė in 2010 it took place in China, in 2011 in Malaysia and for 2012 the host country is South Korea.
15 producer / director teams present and work in depth with their documentaries at a 6-day workshop before pitching their projects to a panel of international commissioners. Through one-to-one access to recognized professionals and trainers from around the world, the programme offers creative and practical support for targeting a project for the international market. The aim is to create an invaluable network between Europe and Asia and to furnish the Crossing Borders participants with the necessary knowledge and contacts for their future work on an international level.
The workshop and pitching takes place from September 18-25, 2012 in conjunction with the DMZ Korean International Documentary Festival in Paju Book City in South Korea.
Crossing Borders is looking for documentary professionals (authors, directors, producers) coming from Europe and the Asia-Pacific who have experience in their domestic market but strive to work in the international field and make documentaries for an international audience.
