The story development workshop is part of the DAB Eastern Partnership Programme, which is supported by the European Union and run by the GOLDEN APRICOT Fund for Cinema Development in Armenia and its partners - MAIA (Italy), INTERFILM (Ukraine),
Cinema Art Centre Prometheus (Georgia) and INTERNEWS (Armenia). The workshop will be composed of lectures, case studies, group work and one-to-one meetings.
The aim of the 36-month Directors Across Borders Eastern Partnership Programme is to foster the development of conditions and structures through which cinema can be a vector for sustainable economic, social and human development within and between Eastern Partnership countries.
The €12 million Eastern Partnership Culture Programme aims at assisting the Partner Countries in their cultural policy reform at government level, as well as capacity building and improving professionalism of cultural operators in the region. It seeks to strengthen regional cultural links and dialogue within the Eastern Partnership region, and between the EU and ENP Eastern countries' cultural networks and actors. (ENPI Info Centre)
