The Nordic Focus Training Days are organised by ACE Producers, an exclusive network of experienced independent film producers from Europe and beyond.

Scheduled over two-and-a-half days, the Training Days will be provided with the help of ACE consultants who have notably strong track-records in international project financing, sales (and online) distribution, and who will share their knowledge and
international expertise.

The Training Days are designed to meet the needs of upcoming producers, at relatively early stages in their careers, from Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Estonia. Participation will not be limited to producers with the same high level of experience as is required for the main ACE Producers training programme.

The workshop will include plenary sessions, group meetings, case-studies and interactive workshops.

The Nordic Focus Training Days are supported by Aalto University, the Finnish Film Foundation, Audiovisual Producers Finland and the Nordisk Film and TV Fond.

Dates: 5th – 7th of October 2019

Location: Espoo and Helsinki, Finland
