Do you want to (further) develop the impact goals and strategies for your documentary? We are currently looking for documentary film projects on human rights and/or social or environmental issues to participate in our Take on Film & Impact programme on 26, 27 and 28 March 2023.
Movies that Matter broadens perspectives by offering a stage for poignant fiction films and revealing documentaries that stir debates about human rights, sustainability and the fight against injustice. Our upcoming festival takes place 24 March – 1 April 2023 in The Hague, The Netherlands.
For our Industry programme, we are calling filmmakers from around the world producing or directing documentaries about human rights and/or social or environmental issues that need to be urgently addressed, to submit their projects for the 2023 edition of the Movies that Matter Take on Film & Impact days.
A selection of documentary film projects will be chosen to take part in the programme. The teams behind the projects will attend both group and individual coaching sessions led by experienced impact producers and filmmakers in order to (further) develop their impact goals and strategies for their films. The focus will be on improving the projects’ impact pitches which will then be presented in front of a panel of impact producers, distributors, sales agents, NGOs and other organisations outside the film field related to the outreach goals of the projects.
The Take on Film & Impact programme will take place during the Movies that Matter Industry Days in The Hague.
There is no application or participation fee. However, all teams are responsible for their own travel and accommodation costs and arrangements. Movies that Matter will provide all participants with a complimentary accreditation.
The workshop programme takes up three full days so if you are not based in the Netherlands we suggest you arrive on the 25th and depart on the 29th. Of course arriving earlier or departing later is encouraged as you’ll be able to experience even more of the festival and industry days.
