Call for Applications – ACE Training Days Norway 2023

ACE Producers is pleased to announce the call for applications for the Training Days Norway 2023 edition, which will be taking place 10-12 October in Oslo, Norway.

The ACE Training Days Norway is a tailor-made 2-day programme designed for emerging producers at relatively early stages in their careers, who are looking to expand their network and learn more about the international context of the audiovisual industry. The workshop welcomes producers working in fiction, animation, and documentary, and strives to make the industry inclusive and diverse.

A total of 12 producers will be selected to join the workshop in Oslo. The call is open to emerging producers from all regions in Norway.

Scheduled over two days, the Training Days Norway will be themed around “The Essentials of Sustainable Film Production”. This interactive workshop will include plenary sessions and case studies, as well as group meetings provided with the help of ACE consultants who will share their knowledge and expertise.

The ACE Training Days Norway has been set up in collaboration with the Norwegian Film Institute. It is connected to the ACE 33 Content Development Workshop (9 – 14 October, Oslo), which is a workshop within the ACE Annual Programme organised for the selected 18 experienced producers from Europe and beyond.
