Opportunity for documentary producers / directors in the East


Published: 30th March 2011.

Are you a documentary producer / director or digital specialist based in the East of England? Convergence specialists, Crossover Lab are looking for participants for a MEDIA Mundus-funded project – OzEuXo – which will bring together 24 documentary / factual film, games and digital media producers (12 from Europe and 12 from Australia), in two reciprocal cross-platform creative and commercial development Labs. Participants will benefit from intensive professional networking and privileged access to content
markets, commissioners and buyers, in Australia and Europe.

They are looking for high level documentary producers/directors and digital specialists who ideally will have credits to their name and have had recent success with their projects.

OzEuXo is a guided, graduated process designed to facilitate the development of international coproductions of cross-platform and transmedia projects between European and Australian companies.

OzEuXo is funded by the MEDIA Mundus program, Film Victoria and a number of European partners. It is being organised and presented during 2011 by Crossover Labs and the Sheffield Doc/Fest. Funding has been identified to cover travel, accommodation, training fees and subsistence whilst attending the labs – although participants may be expected to contribute towards their training costs.

The first OzEuXo (Creative) Lab, organised by Sheffield Doc/Fest in collaboration with Film Victoria and Crossover Labs, will take place in Melbourne, Australia in April 2011. International mentors will support participants to form international cross-disciplinary teams and formulate potential coproduction projects during the Lab to present as first-stage ideas to Australian funders.

The second OzEuXo (Development) Lab will be organised by Sheffield Doc/Fest and Crossover Labs, supported by Film Victoria and will take place in Sheffield immediately before Doc/Fest in June 2011. Mentoring from a team of international experts will prepare the projects for pitching to a panel of European, Australian and international commissioning editors. All 24 participants will network at Sheffield Doc/Fest (with over 1,800 delegates), with privileged access to the MeetMarket, one of Europe's most significant markets for factual and cross-platform content.

This is fantastic opportunity to essentially represent the UK on this programme and the East of England.
