INSPIRATION WORKSHOP - application form

The 2020 INSPIRATION workshop is looking for Moldovan projects with a strong social relevance or those inspiring social change. This year, the workshop will take place in two parts:

MODULE I (August 05 - 09, 2020) focused on developing the proposed project, editing the trailer and study cases.

MODULE II (September 09 - 13, 2020), where you will learn how to write and speak about your story to potential financers and organizations in the field, you will work on perfecting your pitching skills and techniques together with the experts in the industry.

Our new global reality has made us reevaluate how our LAB will happen this year and as the situation develops we will adjust the workshop accordingly to ensure everyone’s safety. We are preparing for all scenarios, adjusted to the participants’ technical needs and possibilities.

Therefore, the first module will take place in an online video format, and will be conducted by the renowned Swedish producer Hjalmar Palmgren (Executive Producer “Searching for Sugar Man”, producer “Big Boys Gone Bananas!*”) and the American documentary film director Melody Gilbert (director “Silicone Soul”, producer “Beneath the Ink” – both films screened at MOLDOX Festival 2018).
