The second session of ESoDoc – European Social Documentary, a training initiative financed by the EU MEDIA Programme, will take place from July 11 till 17 in Berlin-Brandenburg. ESoDoc is financed by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and supported by MEDIA Antenne Berlin-Brandenburg, HFF “Konrad Wolf” and Greenfilm.
ESoDoc takes up the challenge of bringing together the demands of
different players now involved in documentary film production. Across
the spectrum these are: independent documentary film makers and
producers; non-governmental and non-profit organizations (NGOs and
NPOs); television broadcasters and New Media.
ESoDoc aims to create a new professional in the expanding sector of social documentary, building a bridge between documentary films, NGOs, TV and New Media.
Together with our financers and supporters, we would like to invite the film-makers, web documentarists and other interested persons to the Premiere of the latest film by the Canadian video-activist and ESoDoc's trainer Katerina Cizek. The author will be present and will introduce the film.

The National Film Board of Canada placed media maker Katerina Cizek “in residence” at Toronto’s inner-city St. Michael’s Hospital, renowned for innovation in patient care and research. The result is a collection of multi-platform documentaries that prove digital storytelling can work as a tool for social action. Young, homeless mothers problem-solve through “video bridging.” Community-based care saves lives in southern Africa. Suicide intervention therapy and film animation intertwine. Throughout, doctors, nurses and media makers work together to create transformative tools.
The 7 Interventions of Filmmaker-in-Residence charts the project’s five-year history, investigating the creative process from within as media makers join doctors, nurses, researchers and patients at the front-lines of urban and global health. Filmmaker-in-Residence is now recognized around the world as a model for social, cinematic and creative innovation.
