Ex Oriente Film 2013 is the year-long international workshop supporting the development and funding of creative documentary films from Central and Eastern Europe. At the three workshop sessions, directors and producers develop their projects and funding strategies and benefit from the assistance and valuable advice provided by leading European producers, directors, experts and commissioning editors. With every project receiving intensive consultancy throughout the year, Ex Oriente Film culminates with the East European Forum co-production meeting, featuring the final pitching in front of Europe's and North America´s leading commissioning editors, distributors, buyers and film fund representatives.
There are three workshop sessions over the course of one year:
· 1st Session: July 17 – 22, 2013 (Rijeka, Croatia)

Feature length (52´up) documentary projects tackling contemporary topics, challenging genre and media boundaries and audience participation. Projects we seek should show engagement beyond mere observation of events and integrate film and audiences, using innovative ways of storytelling and new modes of perception. We welcome filmmakers who set out to conduct intense experiences and to change the way we think about topical issues, audiences, and the world itself.
