Why to apply?
Science documentary films use a unique way of storytelling, often involve a presenter or animation tools that shed a light on abstract or micro/macro phenomenon. They require a unique research approach and particular production planning. There are special science documentary slots within European broadcasting system and also particular problems to solve. But what is the most striking, science docs can often reach for alternative funding and distribution outlets unavailable to other types of documentaries.
First and internationally unique training and co-financing event enrolls for its 5th edition. Camp 4 Science will once again focus on the development and funding of science documentary films with a special emphasis on Central and Eastern Europe.
With the help of experienced international mentors, participating directors and producers will develop their theme, storytelling and a visual style of their projects. Special emphasis will be given to the most suitable funding possibilities, broadcasters and their recent science slots, specialized markets and distribution channels.
The programme includes interactive group sessions, in-depth individual meetings with key European science docs experts, thematic sessions (animation techniques, storytelling, interactive elements, financial sources for science docs), case studies of outstanding science docs that recently reached wide international audience as well as the unique examples of science docs from Central and Eastern Europe (former Camp´s participants).
The final day of the Camp 4SCIENCE will be dedicated to PUBLIC CAMPING - round table presentations where the participants will introduce their projects to the international commissioning editors, funds and festival representatives.
