How To Finance Your Investigative Documentary
Thursday, September 26
4:15 pm - 5:30 pm
Room 2.015, HafenCity Universit├Ąt (HCU)



You have been digging deeper and are ready to make out of your story a great documentary. But unless you are an employee with a broadcaster, you will be lacking funds to complete the investigation and won’t have the money to jump into production.

There are many grants opportunities out there: how to pick the right one, and how to put together a successful application? And let’s say you made it, got some grants and the honors that come along. Film production is so costly, that no grant whatsoever can achieve a full TV budget. Therefore production companies, pre-buy and co-production deals are daily business in this field.

In this session, three experienced investigative documentary editors will share their knowledge on this complex industry, helping us unlock the jargon and giving a frank advice on how to break the code.
