Apart from their time spent at Doc Station the selected filmmakers will participate in the Summit programme of Berlinale Talents. Doc Station is looking for directors who have either made a feature-length documentary film before, or directors who have made a short documentary and are now working on a feature-length documentary film for the first time.
Quite often, the ‘atelier’ sessions focus on specific fields of work (like production or editing etc.), even though the sessions are always accessible to Talents from other fields of work.
Browse projects and participants of Doc Station 2018 Ten selected documentary filmmakers participating in Berlinale Talents are offered project development in regards to concept, story structure and creative issues.
Atelier sessions The Summit also offers an opportunity for more interactive panel discussions in the ‘atelier’ sessions.
These are mid-scale events for a smaller audience, in which invited experts present practical case studies, enabling Talents to join the discussion and ask more practical questions.
