Greenhouse's Program Consists of Two Methodological Approaches:
- A structured program providing the filmmakers with all professional needs for developing their basic concept into a compelling documentary project: creating a full film package for marketing; establishing networking possibilities; making a trailer which will be edited during the seminars; and participating in a pitching forum event in the presence of leading forces from the international documentary market.
- A custom-made personal program specially designed for each and every project, emphasizing the importance of dialogue with oneself and with one's peers to encourage the exploration of innovative non-fiction storytelling techniques, and promoting the exhibition of documentaries to international audiences.
Greenhouse is designed to enable the exchange of skills and know-how between the personal mentors and the filmmakers, and to stimulate the individual creative process of filmmakers in order to attain perfect team work.
The cultural exchanges between the filmmakers from different countries and cultures, also contributes to the learning process as that of the mentors. We believe in providing a platform for interactions, exchanges of ideas and group feedback.
One on one tailored tutorials:
The meticulous selection process of the participating projects enables us to adapt to the projects' various needs, thus designing a custom made programme tailored especially for each project. The one on one tutorial, as well as the frontal lectures are adapted to the needs of each participant and project. The mentors have the task of exposing the unique voice of each of the filmmakers, as well as their weaker points, so that they are able to work together with them to realize the projects to their maximum potential.
Our leading mentors also act as critics of the individual works in progress as well as personal coaches, so that the filmmakers learn to better understand and improve their abilities. The participating filmmakers also receive guidance and professional assistance from international experts and special lecturers as well as from Greenhouse's team.
