EDN Online Documentary Series Workshop 2017

The EDN Online Documentary Series Workshop is for Nordic directors & producers with a
documentary project that has a potential to be developed as a series. The workshop will focus on
case story analysis as well as discussion and analysis of the participating projects. The deadline for
submitting projects is 20 April 2017.


The EDN Documentary Series Workshop is a 1½-day workshop. On the first day, producer Sigrid Dyekjær (Danish Documentary) and sales agent Salma Abdalla (Autlook Film Sales) will share their experiences with the documentary series Bugs and other doc series. The participants will present their doc series projects and get a short feedback from Sigrid and Salma. On the second day, director Andreas Johnsen will share his experiences from the director’s perspective. Finally, the participating projects will be analyzed by Sigrid Dyekjær, with a focus on production and financing strategies.

The 2-page presentation
Your written 2-page presentation should include the following elements:
