Place: Czech Television Conference Room, Kavci hory 1700, Praha 4, Czech Republic
The official partner and one of the organisers is Czech Television
It is focused on financing of solitary documentaries within an international co-production that allows production of demanding projects financed from multiple sources and on cooperation of broadcasters with independent producers. Lecturers will acquaint the participants with the role of commissioning editors in Western European public TV stations, processes of topics selection, joint financing and broadcasting rights sharing among the producers. Also the system of the Topics market will be introduced, which significantly contributed to the fact that broadcasters overcame their suspicions towards seemingly complicated co-production projects.
Another goal of the seminar is to establish the suspended contacts within the region and discussions on the possibilities of cooperation.
The seminar will be held in English.
