Doc Clinic #5: Post Pitch and Production
We invite you to join us for Doc Clinic #5 on Saturday 28 July. Doc Clinics are a great way to get more guidance, insight and knowledge through in-depth talks and workshops from experienced film professionals.
Turn that great idea into a reality. Following on from Doc Pitch in May, Doc Clinic #5 is the "Where to Now?" for filmmakers looking to move their documentary projects from the development phase into production.
After the pitching process, filmmakers may have many questions as to how to move their projects into production: How do you follow through on the feedback from your pitch? Does your story need to change focus? What is your audience engagement plan and has it shifted since your pitch?Should you pitch it again at a film market? How do you attach a producer? How do you find funding? What revenue streams are available domestically and internationally? Should you be looking overseas for co-producers? What contracts need to be put in place at this stage? Do you need consent from your subjects? Can your documentary have a social impact campaign? Should you start thinking about finding a crew?

What is Doc Pitch
Doc Pitch is a platform for documentary projects to boost their development process and provide industry feedback and support. Film professionals present their project and are given the opportunity to meet with interested broadcasters, producers, and other film professionals, that are able to assist them to further develop and complete their projects.
