Brigid O’Shea. Accessing the international market. Presentation of DOK Leipzig’s opportunities for developing films

Duration
90’

There are many festivals, pitching forums, training initiatives and other resources available to filmmakers to help you get in touch with the international market. Just like the distribution of a documentary, it can be really helpful to make a strategy for the development of a new film. DOK Leipzig is one of the largest meeting places for East/West markets, so let’s discuss in detail the opportunities available and the reality of being part of the international market.

 

Brigid O’Shea is a native of Australia who has worked for European film festivals and documentary organisations since 2008. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts obtained in Melbourne and Berlin, and she started as an intern at the Berlinale Talent Campus. She worked for various Berlinale departments as a freelancer until 2014, including the EFM and the Co-Production Market, until taking a more focused approach on creative documentary. This came from coordinating the DOK Industry Programme from 2009-2015, which also allowed her to freelance for the Institute of Documentary Film in Prague, for Documentary Campus Masterschool, and various Berlin-based production companies. She collected many professional experiences across diverse audiovisual fields as a freelancer, before being appointed Head of DOK Industry Programme in January 2015. She regularly tutors on topics such as European co-financing, cultural management and festival strategies in places like North America and Eastern Europe.
