ESoDoc International is addressed to African, Indian and European filmmakers, new media professionals and NGO representatives who want to develop social documentary projects suitable for the International Markets. 

ESoDoc international gives importance to strategies and methodologies (i.e. Participatory Video) that support a different perspective and a “view from inside” on Africa, India or Europe, a change of position in the narration of a specific story. 

The first ESoDoc International consists in two public online-conferences and one residential workshop for Indian, African and European professionals. It will be supervised by international experts whose expertise is to plan, create and distribute documentary films and cross-media projects with a social impact.

ESoDoc International is organized by ZeLIG School for Documentary (Italy) in partnership with AMREF (Italy & Kenya) and FORMEDIA (India), with the support of MEDIA Mundus.
