Bridging the Gap: Inspiration Workshop – Belfast



Budding documentary filmmakers are invited to participate in a Bridging the Gap Inspiration Workshop in Belfast. The workshop, which is due to take place on Friday 8th September 2017 at 2pm in the MAC, is supported by Northern Ireland Screen.

This free workshop will explain the aims of the 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 LOVE.

This is an opportunity to be bold, ambitious and provocative and to define and redefine love through ideas, characters and stories. The inspiration workshop is an opportunity to get the ball rolling and to start dreaming up your idea.

This workshop will include a screening of previous Bridging the Gap films and will be attended by Sean Mullan, one of last year’s commissioned filmmakers.
