PLAYGROUND DOCUMENTARY - MEET THE PROGRAMMERS

PLAYGROUND DOCUMENTARY is a format at DOK.forum carefully developed for our international Industry Guests. The core of PLAYGROUND is the informal atmosphere that invites speakers and audience as equals, to exchange ideas and talk about their projects and difficulties. The experts that are invited to PLAYGROUND share insights of their work and make space for an active audience to create visions for documentary film. Please register via this link.

 

MEET THE PROGRAMMERS

Due to a large number of film festivals around Europe, it’s hard to keep up with all the different focuses and profiles from all of them. In PLAYGROUND we would like to introduce you to programmers of international festivals that will give some insight on their decision process for programming and their festival’s focus.

Speaker:
Christine Camdessus, FIPADOC
Elise Jalladeau, Thessaloniki Film Festival
Gerhard Wissner, Kasseler Dokfest
Selin Murat, RIDM
