Local Workshops

The local workshops are an intensive 1-week insight into the EURODOC program. A first step into international coproduction.

In parallel with every session of the Annual Program, in the same premises, EURODOC organizes a 5-day-long workshop which welcomes a group of 10-12 producers based in the country hosting the training. Depending on the context, the group may also welcome producers from neighboring regions (Benelux, Mediterranean Islands, etc.). Several masterclasses and case studies are open to the group, and get-together moments are planned everyday to mix the Annual Program cohort and the Local Workshop cohort.

Who can apply?

  • Project-holders:  The producers and filmmakers from the host region/country of the yearly programme sessions are eligible for these one-week intensive workshops.
  • Professionals from the documentary industry: Representatives from regional film funds or regional TV channels may attend as observers

Selected participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive in-depth feedback and advice from an experienced producer and tutor
  • Access masterclasses with the yearly programme participants
  • Attend case studies, followed by extended Q&As on the production process of the films and their distribution
  • Network with European and international documentary professionals attending the EURODOC yearly Programme

During this one-week workshop, the participants will be provided with a deep insight into the European documentary production field and the different possibilities for co-operation and co-production.


Unless specifically stated otherwise, the workshop will be fully in English. The application dossiers have to be written in English.  


The local workshop is supported by our session-hosting partners. Local participants will have 100% of the pedagogical fee and 70% of their accommodation covered by EURODOC and by the Partner hosting the session.
