The DOK PRO Documentary Programme is made for film school & art school graduates, journalists and photographers who are already experienced in the field of filmmaking. We don’t teach the basics, but we develop projects and produce films of programme’s participants.
DOK PRO is based on dialogue: participants and tutors search together for the best solutions for the specific film project at every stage – from development to post-production. At first, participants make a three-minute short film on a given topic and later they carry out the documentation and develop their own documentary projects. Each year, three of the most advanced projects are produced by Production Departament in Wajda Studio.
Among the films developed during DOK PRO and then later on produced in by Wajda Studio are Oscar Nominee “Joanna” (dir. Aneta Kopacz) & EFA’s Nominee “Paparazzi” (dir. Piotr Bernaś), as well as many Polish films awarded at international film festivals.
The programme is conducted in Polish.
