This year, 10x10 gets a Sheffield Twist: We're focussing on the all-important trailer!
Friday 15th June, 3.45pm, Channing Hall
Trailer, taster, teaser… whatever you call it, join the conversation as three filmmakers present their work-in-progress for feedback from you, the audience. And remember, the conversation continues in the pub, thanks to Audio Network...
10x10 is a free project development workshop - filmmakers screen up to 10 minutes of their non-fiction works-in-progress and receive 10 minutes of directed feedback from the group.
We're returning to Sheffield Doc/Fest for the 5th year running, and to celebrate we're giving the event a new twist: all projects screened must be some form of trailer, whether it's a short taster tape for a TV commissioner, or a crowd-funding trailer.
A past participant put it in a nutshell:
"10x10 peddles purely in feedback – good, bad, but hopefully always constructive. A unique opportunity, it provides that other crucial element – alongside money – that abounds in studio or broadcast infrastructures, but is in distinctly short supply at the independent level: the opportunity of a second, third and fourth opinion; the thoughts of an unbiased audience."
Run as a partnership between DFG and Doculink, 10x10 is a great opportunity to feel part of an independent doc community - to get support from other filmmakers, share experience and, crucially, a rare chance to gain a hands-on perspective of what works, what doesn't and why.
10x10 is sponsored by the lovely people at Audio Network, who provide documentary filmmakers with over 50,000 music tracks that are cleared for multi-platform, worldwide - forever.
