A series of workshops held at the University of Auckland. The Clinics are a great way to get more guidance, insight and knowledge through in-depth talks and workshops from experienced film professionals.

Doc Clinic #1:  The Art of Pitching

Saturday, 24 February 2018  |  10.00am to 1.00pm
University of Auckland

Doc Clinics are wrapped around the Doc Pitch to provide better support. Doc Edge invites all filmmakers who are interested in pitching a project at Doc Pitch or want to learn more about the pitching procedure to register for Doc Clinic #1 before Saturday the 24th of February. Both Doc Clinic #1 and #2 are introductory sessions to pitching, looking at story development, writing proposals and creating audio-visual support clips. Besides other experienced film professionals, we will have filmmaker David Farrier, who successfully pitched his film Tickled at Doc Pitch 2014, to talk about his pitch experience.
