Binger Filmlab a new documentary initiative: DOC LAB

Doc Lab
Applications open now!

This programme offers talented Documentary filmmakers coaching from fine-tuning the initial idea, through narrative development, the actual shooting, to the editing of their film and on towards festival platforming, marketing and release.

In approximately 18 months the project driven Doc Lab focuses - in both residential workshops in Amsterdam, and flexible individual on-site mentoring by advisors such as Jennifer Fox, Molly Stensgaard and John Appel - on creative development, production and post-production. Taking the changeable and volatile working practices of documentary filmmakers into consideration it offers flexible modules to allow different speeds of development and production.

Doc Lab is especially designed for filmmakers and projects that are innovative in their style and approach, have a social or cultural relevance and above all have a strong narrative drive and potential for theatrical release.

Documentary filmmakers with previous documentary experience and a project at an early stage of development can apply through Bingers’ website; application deadline: March 1st, 2010.

Doc Lab starts in June 2010 and offers place to 8 (6 European, 2 non-European) documentary filmmakers.
