1 – 8 AUGUST 2012

The "Lemesos International Documentary Festival", this year in its seventh edition, promises to be an up to date, refreshing event, looking closely at those moments from human reality that will trigger exiting, groundbreaking and adventurous cinematic journeys. The Festival, co-organised by Brave New Culture and the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation, will take place between the 1st and 8th August 2012, at its permanent event space, the 2nd Municipal Market (Theatro Ena), in Limassol.

Like every year, a documentary professional event entitled DocsTalk, will be organized. DocsTalk 2012, which is co-organised with Media Desk Cyprus, will consist of a series of lectures, workshops and individual meetings and is directed to professional directors / producers and to anyone who is interested in learning more about the various aspects of creating a documentary film, such as storytelling and script writing, producing and developing, filming techniques and festival distribution.

Apart from the general activities of the workshop, which will be open to the public, a workshop entitled Doc Checks will be co-organised in collaboration with the organisation 'Sources 2' (Germany), specialised in scriptwriting and script development. 'Sources 2' adviser Ulla Simonen (Finland) will give a keynote on Scriptwriting for Documentaries, and in individual 20-30-minute consultation sessions (following application procedure) she will provide professional feed-back, ideas, suggestions and practical advice on developing the proposed documentary film projects in development. A maximum of 8 projects will be selected.
The meetings are targeted to documentary filmmakers or teams of directors/ producers with a documentary film project in development.

The lecture and meetings will take place between 16:00 and 19:00 on Saturday, August 4th 2012.

Interested applicants can submit an application until the 16th July 2012.
