VERZIO DocLab Workshop for Documentary Film Projects and Festivals

The VERZIO DocLab is a four-day workshop for documentary filmmakers and independent producers, who are working on projects on minority, immigration, social justice, human rights, and Roma issues.

The program consists of an intense project-development workshop for pre-selected documentary projects. During the course, the participants will get a better understanding of the cultural differences of documentaries in Europe and financing possibilities available for filmmakers, producers and festivals. In the workshop we are going through the principles of storytelling, choosing characters, writing a treatment, and editing a trailer. Furthermore we will give advice on budgeting and making a financing plan for their projects. A special emphasis will be on verbal presentation of the project and how to make a good pitch.

The documentary projects will be presented in a pitching forum at the end of the workshop. The pitching forum is open for public and it will take place on Saturday, November 10, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at OSA Archivum, (1051 Budapest Arany János utca 32).

The VERZIO DocLab is organized by Verzio International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, Finnagora, Documentary in Europe, Open Society Arts and Culture Program, and OSA Archivum.

The workshop will take place from November 7 to 10 in OSA Archivum, Arany János utca 32.
