Crossing Borders 2016 Part 1

July 15-20, 2016. South Korea.

This year's edition of Crossing Borders launches with a project development workshop that takes place in conjunction with BCPF‘s renowned Docu Clinic in South Korea.

Crossing Borders is an international training programme bringing 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 other’s markets both artistically and financially.

This year's edition of Crossing Borders consists of 3 sessions: a development workshop kicking off the programme, a separate online session focusing on story development and trailers (scheduled for September) and a pitch training workshop which will be taking place in October in Leipzig, Germany (also see Crossing Borders Part 2).

To be eligible for Crossing Borders you either have to be an Asian resident with a company based in an Asian country or be a European with a European company address. Projects must either take place in Asia or have an Asian angle / relevance. The language of the workshop is English and all applications must be in English.

About Crossing Borders

Crossing Borders is an international training programme launched in 2010 by Documentary Campus and the EDN – European Documentary Network. 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 other’s markets both artistically and financially.

Through one-to-one sessions with 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 participants with the necessary knowledge and contacts for their future work on an international level.
