We are very pleased to report that our film has been accepted into the IDFAcademy 2015, a training program for emerging filmmakers held by the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam -- the largest documentary film festival in the world! The IDFAcademy program gives participants the opportunity to meet a broad spectrum of highly esteemed documentary professionals who are willing to share their knowledge of the industry.
This year's program will include a session with Danish sound designer and composer Kristian Eidnes Andersen (who worked on many films by Lars von Trier and documentaries such as Blood in the Mobile and Something Better to Come), as well as a session about the latest trends in crowd funding with Liz Cook (Kickstarter) and Kristen Konvitz (Indiegogo). The Pitch and Trailer Workshop, with tips and tricks from experts in the field of making a successful pitch and trailer, will also again be part of the program and will be hosted by Mikeal Upstrup of EDN.
We are ecstatic to have been selected to participate! Stay tuned for notes from Amsterdam in November!
