This course focuses on the core activity of documentary production companies which is project development and production financing to create ‘market ready’ packages.
We run the course in collaboration with Sheffield Doc/Fest. This is one of the UK’s leading international documentary festivals and markets, which attracts key industry decision makers, financiers, distributors and inspirational filmmakers from around the world.
The aim of the course is to help you to become a creative producer or director who understands how international documentary funding works. You learn to apply documentary filmmaking skills in the context of cross-platform convergent media.
You are taught by Northern Media School staff who are active filmmakers with a track record of excellence in their field, together with key guest speakers from Sheffield Doc/Fest...."
