Thessaloniki Masterclass with Stefan Kloos: Producing and Packaging Documentaries

How can short documentaries be produced and packaged in a compelling way? What are the challenges and advantages when working with international co-productions of short documentaries? Will the digital future bring a bigger need for short formats?  These are some of the issues explored in this master class focusing on the German -Czech co-production Breathless. This project consists of five short creative documentaries on the theme Breathless - Dominance of the Moment.  During the masterclass, producer Stefan Kloos will share his experience and knowledge on developing, producing and distributing a package of short documentaries. He will give a detailed inside view of the process of financing the films, working with such different funders as cultural funds and broadcasters, as well as how it can be an advantage to work with a package of films. During the masterclass short clips from the five films will be screened. 
Today: 3PM
