Arché is Apordoc‘s creative development space aiming at directors, producers, film critics and other professionals. Taking place in the scope of Doclisboa International Film Festival and with the support of Ibermedia Programme, it intends to provide tools to new film projects, as well as moments of reflection and training thus fostering and assuring projects’ identity and quality. Arché welcomes 12 projects in different stages of production, from Portugal, Spain, Italy and South and Central America countries, offering them the opportunity to work with a tutor for several days in development workshops. It also provides them visibility and networking moments – a presentation session and one-to-one meetings with international producers, distributors, programmers and other agents. Arché welcomes 3 critics and film researchers in a Film Critic and Research Workshop.
