Conversations on Documentary Filmmaking
Every month, we will conduct a mentoring workshop for young and new filmmakers on different aspects of the making of a documentary film: the language and ethics of documentary narrative. This discussion will take place in an informal, round table setting, moderated by 2 mentors, to enable the filmmakers to question, and thereby push their ideas/concepts further.
We invite filmmakers to submit their concepts / proposals in 1-2 pages, accompanied by a short bio, to enable us to select 4-5 proposals that can be discussed. The project may be at any stage:concept /pre production or even post.

Please note: 
The event is for young documentary filmmakers to share their ideas. It is not for observers.
This session is free of charge.

The mentoring workshop will be a day long session and will be conducted every month with a new set of proposals. 

Projects which were not short listed earlier, please feel free to apply again, preferably with additions.
(The following people were short listed for 1st round. 
Sumit Verma, Tinni Mitra, Ketaki Savnal, Subhashis Roy, Abhijeet Parmar. The workshop took place on 20th April.)
