the Docmonde project
Born in 2012 from the international activities of the Ardèche Images association, the Docmonde association offers training in documentary writing and production, and organizes international co-production meetings, through several regional programs: Africadoc, Eurasiadoc, Doc Amazonie Caribbean, Asiadoc, Doc Indian Ocean and Doc Pacific.
From the outset, the objective has been to intimately link the creative process of the writing workshops with the actual production of projects, on five continents. Over relatively long workshops, the film emerges, which can then be presented to its future partners: producers, broadcasters, invited by Docmonde to participate in international co-production meetings.
The aim of these forums is to create an authentic space where local filmmakers can exchange with both local and international professionals in the documentary industry, so as to unveil the singularity of these outlooks coming from all over the world. It is precisely the unique perspective of each filmmaker that Docmonde strives to support. The infinite diversity of creative documentary cinema gives every participant the opportunity to convey their individual worldview and preserve their multi-faceted, unpredictable realities.
Taking the time to think, write, meet people and network, create, experience the journey and understand is increasingly rare and precious in this era of immediacy and abstraction. This time is essential to the elaboration of authentic and singular creations. It is this temporal space that the Docmonde programmes seek to offer their participants, buoyed by the hope that by distributing such a multitude of different visions of the world, in turn the world might just be transformed.
