Scottish Documentary Institute invites you to attend an outreach workshop in Dumfries to help you prepare for submission to our Bridging the Gap short documentary film scheme, one of the leading documentary new talent initiatives in the UK.

We will be showing examples of past Bridging the Gap work, explaining the aims of the scheme and how to improve your chances to be short-listed. Please bring along an idea for a short documentary and learn how to develop and focus your proposal and pitching skills.

The workshop will be followed by a short break and a screening of selected Bridging the Gap short documentaries from previous years.

There are limited spaces available so make sure to book your place early. Hosted by SDI and Dumfries & Galloway Council

To register for this workshop please email with your name, postcode and a brief summary about yourself.

Chappin' directed by  Igor Slepov was one of the 2014 Bridging the Gap Shorts
Bridging the Gap is open to all Scottish-based filmmakers, giving them the opportunity to work closely with Scottish Documentary Institute to make 10-minute documentaries.

As well as a cash budget of up to 8K (plus in-kind post-production and distribution support) the selected filmmakers will receive further training and mentoring over six months to create vibrant new stories. The films are intended for distribution in cinemas and festivals. Past projects have screened in film festivals in over 45 countries worldwide and won numerous awards. Scottish Documentary Institute is an internationally recognised documentary research and production centre based in Edinburgh. Our aim is to stimulate and inspire the documentary scene in Scotland and beyond through focus on creative excellence.
