IDFA Academy Summer School

Dear people from our professional documentary network,

I would like to inform you about our upcoming IDFAcademy Summer School.

From 4 until 9 July 2011 the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam organizes the fourth edition of the IDFAcademy Summer School: a tailor-made training program aimed at strengthening the narrative structure of documentary film projects in script development and editing stage.

The deadline for submission for the Summer School is 1 April 2011. You can read more about the Summer School and download an entry form from the IDFA website here. I hope you can forward the information below to your network of filmmakers and producers.

About the Summer School
The Summer School combines individual coaching with group sessions and an inspiring cultural program in a relaxed atmosphere. It offers two types of training possibilities: Script Development and Editing Consultancy. Around sixteen projects in script development or editing stage (rought cut) from all over the world will be selected for the Summer School 2011. The filmmakers of these projects will be coached in Amsterdam intensively by 8 international documentary experts. Filmmakers who are selected have the opportunity to bring a sparring partner: a creative producer, a co-scriptwriter, or an editor in the case of participation in Editing Consultancy. If a project is selected, a project fee of €750 (excluding VAT) is due.

Thank you very much and all the best, Meike
