Major single piece and serial television documentaries from different countries provided the focus of a conversation about experiences with international co-productions. Georg Tschurtschenthaler (Germany) told the audience how Gebrüder Beetz found international co-production partners and financing for their documentary ‘The Cleaners’ about the people who ‘clean’ the Internet; Eric Lieshout (Netherlands) introduced his series ‘Made in Europe’; Stéphane Siohan (France) talked about the complex media co-operations on his Ukrainian, Polish, French documentary ‘Home Games’; Daniela Drastasta (Croatia) and Frans Jennekens (Netherlands) presented a sneak preview of their just completed series ‘New Neighbours’ and Sören Klovborg (Denmark) spoke about working with the Why Foundation on the documentary ‘Maid in Hell’. The conversation was hosted by Ruurd Bierman, an acclaimed keynote speaker.
A unique chance to compare notes with other experienced filmmakers, to ask questions and share experiences.
