Scottish Documentary Institute Mentorship Scheme For Filmmakers

The Scottish Documentary Institute is announcing its new international mentorship scheme, connecting Stories, run with the support of British Council. This is a nine-month programme for documentary filmmakers developing their first or second feature film, from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The deadline is on Tuesday 22nd March 2021.

The programme combines seminars exploring various aspects of the industry, including the development and the production of feature films, individual mentorship sessions, and masterclasses with international key players in the current documentary landscape.

Up to 12 participants will be selected to take part in various online activities (group seminars, individual mentorship, industry events) designed to help them grow their knowledge of the industry, their confidence to navigate the international scene, to work with co-producers and to put together the right material to pitch their projects and apply for funding.

The deadline is on Tuesday 22nd March 2021. 

 

Main Criteria

Applicants are expected to be in development, production or early post-production of their first or second feature length documentary, to have already engaged with their characters and to have some early footage showing their access to the story.
