2022 Clinics Programme is virtual and available to anyone, anywhere in the world.
We all want to tell great stories that are impactful. To do so, we must keep abreast of both creative skills as well as develop our business know-how. Doc Edge Clinics is a professional development programme for filmmakers, and creators of documentary and factual content.
This year’s workshops will cover the art of interviewing, marketing your film, how to monetise your project, copyright rights, making your short film matter, and a very special session on how to survive and thrive in the screen sector.
A total of six clinics will run from 1 October to 3 December, every second Saturday at 10.30am NZT (New Zealand Time) with the exception of Clinic #5 with Lyfta’s Charlie Phillips, which will be held 7pm Friday 25 November.
