I just attended Doclab Academy, the interactive-storytelling talent development Academy that is a sidebar of IDFA, the Cannes of documentaries. I can’t recommend this Academy highly enough though the film festival itself, separate from DocLab, is great too.
The full programme and an idea of participants are within below. Closing date is Sept each year. Please apply.
This programme is covered by IMDA under their media labs fund (which they call “Film Mentorship Initiative”). For those interested in just documentaries, there is the IDFA Academy which you can apply for.idfa-doclab-academy-program-info
