ARISTOTELES WORKSHOP (AW) is a training and development center dedicated to foster a new generation of creative documentary filmmakers around the world. Established in 2006, with substantial material and spiritual support from the French/German cultural TV channel arte. 12 participants will be selected on the basis of a dossier (credentials, demo reels, and recommendations). Participants should express an avid interest in learning and doing documentary films. The ideal composition of the group is that of young documentary filmmakers, writers, producers, directors, DPs and editors.
Established and respected professionals will help the participants translate their own ideas into fresh, ground breaking documentaries.
AW will provide accomodations, production and post production equipment and facilities. In the end each group will have to deliver a half-hour documentary ready for broadcast and entirely marketable.
Call for entries for the 2017 edition is open till 25 May.
