7 May 2024 10:00 — 11:30
CCCB - Sala Raval

The creative teams of three debut documentaries selected at DocsBarcelona, Sissel Morell (Balomania), Mar Clapés and Guillem Cabra (Binu), and Kristoffer Juel Poulsen (Daughter of Genghis) will talk about the need to establish production partnerships, to the urgency of becoming visible in the festival circuit, to the complexity of finding funding. In this conversation we will discover the keys to everything that needs to be done and the paths one may follow to move forward with an opera prima.
