Taught by experienced filmmakers, plus some of the UK’s most exciting documentary makers with new films in the 56th BFI London Film Festival.
Over the four days you will explore an original idea for a documentary and learn what the core elements of pre-production are. These elements will include:
The Lab presents these core elements of pre-production in the context of the UK documentary production sector and different types of documentary.
