An initiative of the Atlas Workshops, Atlas Station is a workspace for accredited filmmakers and producers who are developing a feature-length fiction or documentary project, or who seek to enrich their knowledge through engaging with international speakers attending the workshops to share their experience on select themes.
The Atlas Station consists of two sections, which have been developed to provide the most appropriate support to participants: Consultations and Training Sessions.
Atlas Station – Consultations
Half-hour consultations by invitation only with experts during which participants discuss and diagnose the obstacles that sometimes hinder the progress of documentary or fiction projects.
Once again this year, we are pleased to partner with Powered by DOX Garage, a DOX BOX programme, which offers this support for documentary projects. Sessions are organized for fiction projects with the Atlas Workshops team.
Atlas Station – Training Sessions
Intense, concise sessions that allow for more direct exchange between participants and experts. Open to all accredited Atlas Workshops participants who seek to strengthen their skills, these different modules of between 45 and 60 minutes are led by international experts who share their experience and knowledge in a variety of fields, from writing to distribution.
