The SILBERSALZ Institute presents a series of closed workshops, where participants are exclusively supervised and supported by experts and mentors. In addition, there are online masterclasses by renowned industry representatives. These are recorded and then made available to the public digitally.

The program starts online, collaborating with media professionals from a range of creative disciplines to identify the ideal format for your research: could it become a film, a game, a performance, an art-work or an immersive experience? This early concept is then presented to the creative community at special events during Pariscience in Paris and during EXPERIMENTA, la Biennale, in Grenobleat MC2 in Grenoble, where we match you with a media collaborator to create a production team that will develop the concept further along with experts across the three Institute strands: documentary film, games and interactive, and arts and culture.

The schedule of the institute stretches over 5 modules within one year. Module 5 ends with the pitch during the Silbersalz Festival in Halle. In between, the projects are accompanied and supervised by professional media experts.
