Asia Doc 2016

Together with the Goethe Institute in Vietnam, the French Institutes in Vietnam and Cambodia and the Bophana Center in Phnom Penh, Docmonde proposes a documentary script-writing residence and a documentary co-production meeting for Southeast Asian authors (Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Brunei).

From February 22nd to March 5th 2016, at the Bophana Center in Phnom Penh, the selected authors will have the opportunity to develop their documentary projects. One trainer from Germany, writer and director himself, will mentor the program.

Together they will analyst the content and the esthetical options of their projects, they will screen films related to their projects, they will define the development possibilities, and finally write a new version of their script.

The training program is free of charge for the selected participants.
Qualification is not required but at least some experience in film-making (professional or non-professional), in link with the image (broadcasting, photography, visual arts…) or writing (theatre, literature…) would be preferable. The trainer will adapt to the development stage of the project and the experience of the participants to provide them with the relevant level of assistance they need to strengthen their projects. Beginners and experienced filmmakers can apply.

The projects should be presented by film writers/makers, whether or not they already have a producer, and good communication skills in English are required.

Applications including the form filled in and the required documents must be sent only by email and in English before January 23rd 2016 – midnight to the following address:
