About the project:
Ex Oriente Film is an international workshop focused on creative development and funding of creative documentary films. During three week-long workshops held over the next nine months, producers and directors gain assistance and advice from leading filmmakers and experts in the development of ideas, production, and distribution strategy for their upcoming documentaries.

The Ex Oriente Film program leads into the co-production session East European Forum, where workshop participants will present their projects to European and North American television and independent producers, distributors, buyers and film fund representatives, as well as festivals representatives. In addition to automatic inclusion in the East European Forum workshop, participants will have the opportunity to gain a wide range of scholarships and prizes in the form of direct financial support, co-production agreements, access to leading European markets and partner training.
