Filmmakers and creatives with projects in the intersection between documentary, animation, games and emerging media; are invited to apply and take part in the ANIDOX workshop during Fredrikstad Animation Festival. The workshop will be held on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 of October.

ANIDOX is a creative platform for the development and production of animated documentary projects. It runs a laboratory, a professional training course, a residency programme and master classes. Bringing together international film professionals to attend seminars and hands-on creative workshops, the main goal of ANIDOX is to foster and develop collaborations between animation and documentary creatives, and help them move further with their projects.

As part of a collaboration between the festival, ANIDOX and Viken regional film centre, a two-day workshop will be held, giving documentary and animation filmmakers the chance to meet and develop pitches for animated documentaries or documentaries that will use animation as a tool for storytelling. Participants will get instant feedback on their projects from highly-acclaimed filmmakers in the field of animation and documentary. Concluding the workshop, the projects will be presented during a public pitch session at the House of Literature in Fredrikstad.

The workshop is open for professional filmmakers in the field of animation and documentaries. Students with an animated documentary project are welcome to apply, but projects presented by professionals will be prioritised.

The registration form can be found here. The registration form should include a pdf including: project description, directors statement, short bio, CV, links to previous works and 1-2 applicable images.
