For 40 European producers, line producers, production managers and postproduction managers. No director-producers. All applicants must have professional experience with the production of feature and/or documentary films.

How to deal with the developments of the digital era

  • Be acquainted with the main workflows available on the European market
  • Best position the production of their feature or documentary films within the digital workflow
  • Grasp the means of communication and tasks division between the partners involved, from the director to the postproduction provider
  • Understand the advantages and disadvantages of digital distribution and the importance of digital archiving.
  • Using a mix of technical presentations and case studies, the Workshop compares and analyses the best digital production and post-production workflows, with a special focus on a low film budget (200’000 € to 1 mio €) and a “standard” budget (around 2 mio €).
    Participants may submit their own feature/documentary projects in pre-production (from low to high budgets) to be pitched and discussed at the Workshop.

    The last part of the Workshop deals with the new digital distribution workflow, from the Digital Cinema Distribution Master (DCDM) to the theater, and includes panel discussions on issues related to distribution, exhibition and digital archiving.
