What is EsoDoc


ESoDoc - European Social Documentary is the training initiative for media professionals who are eager to develop their co-creative skills and the potential of their documentary and new media project. ESoDoc is designed for authors, directors and creative producers who are willing to dedicate time and energy in the creative development process during the training, who want to approach their project from different angles and explore new forms and new formats of audiovisual production. The master program is implemented by Zelig School for Documentary, Television and New Media, supported by Creative Europe Media program.


ESoDoc in Georgia 2021 is organized locally by Chai Khana in collaboration with GNFC.


Why ESoDoc


You will learn to think laterally, to look at the potential of your project from different points of view and to approach it from different angles, to use collaborative development tools to better understand the relationship with the audience and create better impact, outreach and distribution strategies. 


Participation in ESoDoc in Georgia is free of charge. If selected, together with two other participants, you will join 17 European participants for the third (pitching) session, which includes pitching training and preparation. 


Selected candidates will be offered an opportunity and financial support to collaborate with Chai Khana's multimedia platform to produce a short version of their projects.
