Ex Oriente Film

Session 1

1st Ex Oriente Film Session: Find Your Way – Vision, Space and Storytelling
June 17-22, 2022 (La Rochelle, France, at Sunny Side of the Doc)


In this first session a panel of tutors composed of directors, curators and producers will take you in the different direction that your project could take. In a balance between inspirational sessions and hands-on session the tutoring team will help you exploring the infinitive creative solutions offered by the cinematographic language.

In the practical part of the program, participants mainly work on the processing and development of their documentary projects, focusing on the content of the film and its storytelling. Workshop helps participants to analyse and understand the potential of their subject matter, ideas, and plot, in order to find what is universal within them and to expand on and strengthen these very points:

- story of the film and its protagonists
- analysing the strong and weak points of the project and its international dimension
- constructing a basic concept for the strategy of the film’s production and financing
- basic orientation within the system of European funding, grants and broadcasters

Apart from individual meetings, group sessions and film development lectures on storytelling and financing, the first part of the workshop will also offer inspirational sessions by renowned filmmakers as well as film screenings.
