A Masterclass with Mike Lerner - Scottish Documentary Institute

A Masterclass with Mike Lerner

We are delighted to welcome Oscar nominated producer Mike Lerner to Edinburgh for a Scottish Documentary Institute masterclass.

Mike will share his experience of producing highly successful documentaries such as The Square, Hell and Back Again, Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer (and many many more). How do you get these films off the ground? How do you combine creative ambition and reaching out to a wider audience, beyond the documentary scene? How do you work with filmmakers?


Join us to discover more about the role of producer and discuss the ever changing landscape of documentary.
Come and get inspired!

Anyone welcome!  FREE but places are limited so please RSVP to info@scottishdocinstitute.com
