Submit your application and join the EURODOC network

* The programme
EURODOC is a training programme
 specifically designed for co-producing creative documentaries at the international level,
a documentary think-tank covering a wide variety of narrative styles and production modes with the aim of defending the documentary genre.
Programme fundamentals include widening your horizons to discover new territories of cooperation and experiencing new outlooks together with roughly 25 other professionals from Europe and beyond.
To tackle every aspect of the development process of a film project, more than 50 experts, currently active in the field of documentary production and financing intervene during the training programme:
producers, lawyers, pitching and co-production consultants, commissioning editors, distributors and financiers.
* A new outlook
Among other new features planned for upcoming EURODOC sessions, we will be organizing short Master Classes with major players in the audiovisual world and new media.
Considering the significant changes occurring in the fields of production, distribution and broadcasting, the objective is to gain in-depth understanding of how the main protagonists tackle them today.
Although the training programme is mainly focused on the project presented by each producer, the idea here is to provide a personal approach to understanding the future direction television channels are planning to take and how they make their decisions.

Today, EURODOC is a strong and influential network of more than 750 professionals from 53 countries. More than 200 films have already been transmitted.
