Development, 7 days
The first session is dedicated for the analysis of the participants’ projects in terms of writing and development. The group work is followed by individual meetings with the invited experts regarding the development of the scripts. The directors of projects accompany their producers during this session, and the talks between them revolve mainly around the scripts.
Intellectual property Copyrights and sources of funding for the development are also tackled during the first session.
The case studies make it possible to scrutinize some examples of productions already achieved.
Coproduction, 7 days
The second session focuses on:
- The budget preparation and the production mode.
- The “packaging”: Preparing the file that specifies all creative, technical, legal and financial aspects.
- The coproduction: Setting up agreements and contracts.
- Funding: Identifying partners capable of co-financing the project at the national and international levels.
The third session is mainly dedicated to meetings with distributors.
It is held in parallel with Session 1 of the following cycle, which will make it possible to increase the connections between the participants of different promotions, as well as between the participants and the experts.
Session 3 is dedicated to presenting the developed projects to the decision makers. These meetings are prepared actively within the group during the first two days of the session.
During this session, each decision maker presents in plenary sessions the editorial line of his channel, company or fund.
Also in plenary sessions, a distributor presents the documentary market: distribution in theaters, new consumption modes and emerging markets.
