This free workshop will explain the aims of the Bridging the Gap scheme and will provide tips on how to improve your chances of being selected. You will also get the opportunity to pitch your short documentary idea informally and receive feedback.
The theme of this year’s Bridging the Gap is RED.
This is an opportunity to be bold, ambitious and provocative and to define and redefine RED through ideas, characters and stories. The inspiration workshop is an opportunity to get the ball rolling and to start dreaming up your idea.
The call for this year’s Bridging the Gap opens on 15th August, to give emerging filmmakers based in Scotland and Northern Ireland the chance to apply for a place on the scheme.
