A four-day meeting of 10 selected directors from around the world and significant personalities from outside the film community; in 2012 a writer, publicist and representative of a social activist group.
Inspiration Forum is a project focused on searching for new themes and subjects in documentary film through bringing together film makers and creative personalities active in other professional fields.
At present, there are numerous festival and industry activities focused on the development of an existing topic, the search for co-producers and the extension of distribution possibilities. The Inspiration Forum, on the other hand, creates a platform for the search for new themes and their interpretations, preceding the film maker’s decision as to which subject is to be developed.
