Les États généraux du film documentaire 2015 August Encounters

August Encounters


For sixteen years, the Lussas Documentary School has organised this seminar with the aim of offering a training window especially designed for people with challenging, stylistically ambitious documentary projects. In the little village of Saint-Laurent-sous-Coiron, producer-director duos meet with representatives of the industry (television companies, distributors, institutions) who profess support for creative documentary. Over three intense and friendly days, creators and professionals meet, discuss and work. In the present context of worry but also mobilisation around creative documentary, this professional meeting will also provide an essential moment to engage in shared reflection around the future of creative documentary production.
Twenty-four project holders will be welcomed this year. The first day, they will split up into two workshops led by the duos Céline Loiseau – Raphael Pillosio and Serge Gordey – Vincent Sorrel.
The two following days will provide the opportunity for participants to discuss within the framework of individual in-depth meetings with programme commissioners, directors of Regional and CNC support funds, distributors, and publishers of DVD and VOD platforms.
