An online platform accessible all year round, providing resources, content and networking opportunities to help filmmakers and producers from Open Doors' focus regions to develop their projects.
Available to be consulted freely, the online platform Open Doors ToolBox aims to provide a space and a resource center for directors and producers to acquire new forms of knowledge related to their craft and the development possibilities of their projects (for example, via international funds, development workshops, or after being selected for festivals), as well as to foster and maintain a broader community of fellow filmmakers that can sustain itself.
Through Open Doors ToolBox, filmmakers and producers from the current and previous regions of Open Doors, including new talents, are offered valuable new types of resources, accessible all year round.
Interactive features such as a Forum Area, the chance to comment under each resource and save favorite topics, allow the members to create a sustainable professional network while discovering new resources in a common space.
