Following their lecture, up to 5 senior international producers in roles of mentors will discuss with mentee-producers in the format of group works (5 group sessions in total). Also, each participant-producer will be matched with a senior producer for an individual online consultation.
The guest tutors of the new edition are: Hanne Phlypo (Clin d'oeil films, BE), Khadidja Benoutaf (Impact Social Club, FR), Laura Briand (Les Films d'Ici, FR) and Erik Winker (Corso Film, DE). Within the upcoming 5 online sessions, the tutors are going to cover the topics of European funding (focusing on MEDIA), co- production with France/Germany, creating an impact strategy and producing documentary series among others.
