Meet the Coach!

The masterclass Storytelling in Documentaries will be coached by Julia Popławska. Julia will talk about the importance of Storytelling in Documentaries. You will learn how to enhance the story element in documentaries. For a selected group of participants, Julia will work on their own future projects to strengthen the storytelling within them.

Driven to Destruction, Line van den Berg
About the fine line between being driven and destruction.
