Completely new editing versions – and a lot of fresh ideas came out of the first workshop session in Trest…

The first week of May, DOK.Incubator first workshop session was taking place in Trest, Czech Republic. The group of participants, observers, film school students and the internationla tutors, gathered in the renaissance castle of Trest (1513) to screen and discuss the first versions of rough cuts, share the doubts and concerns – and find out new opportunities for the eight projects, particpating in the international group.

For the first time, paralel to the international group, DOK.Incubator was hosting also a workshop for local, Czech and Slovak films in the shooting stage. The producers, directors and editors of these four selected projects were focusing the story and planning future shooting, in order to achieve the strongest film possible, and reach out its international potential.

Experienced, acknowledged producers, publicists and festival/sales people as Ulla Simonen (FI) and Claas Danielsen (DE), Sigrid Dyekjaer (DK), Ingmar Trost (DE), Freddy Neumann (DK) and Salma Abdalla (AT), together with five great editors – Anne Fabini (DE), François Sculier (FR), Nanna Frank Møller (DK), Yael Bitton (CH) and Stephan Krumbiegel (DE), were leading the teams of both the workshops to maximize the films´ potential in terms of the artistic expression of the filmmakers – and abitility to travel internationally.

Now, the teams go back to their editing rooms, will keep on consulting with their leading tutors trough-out online sessions and will meet again in Smolenice (Slovakia), 2nd – 9th July.
