Creative Europe Desk Galway holds European documentary seminar with EDN

On 15 January 2016, Creative Europe Desk Galway is holding a documentary seminar with the European Documentary Network (EDN). 

Run in association with Galway Film Centre/UNESCO City of Film, the seminar includes two lectures from the director of EDN, Paul Pauwels. It takes place as part of Galway Film Centre’s annual Film and TV seminar, Talking Documentary

Aimed at documentary producers and directors, in particular those pitching to international commissioning editors and buyers, the first lecture focuses on the do's and don'ts of pitching. The second talk will examine the European documentary landscape, including sources of finance for the creative documentary, new trends in the genre and new possibilities in distribution.

Paul Pauwels will also be available to meet with filmmakers individually to advise on financing and distribution in Europe.

The seminar also includes sessions on how to document personal stories and ‘The Loneliness of the Self Shooting Observational Documentary Maker’.

To find out more and register for the event, see the Galway Film Centre website.
