Global Short Docs Forum is back for 2019!

Following the success of its first edition in London, we are delighted to announce that the Global Short Docs Forum is back for its second year!

Global Short Docs Forum (GSDF) is a new initiative connecting filmmakers of documentary shorts with digital platforms.

This year’s forum will be hosted by Docudays UA Film Festival  in Ukraine, and is now open for applications!

GSDF hosts 16 filmmakers selected from a global call, to attend a 4-day, all expenses paid, residential workshop. Filmmakers benefit from invaluable pitching training, mentoring, masterclasses from industry experts and one-to-one meetings with decision makers from online platforms.
