ESoDoc – European Social Documentary
In 2006, SOS Malta was successful with an application it submitted to the European Community's Media Plus Programme.
ESoDoc - European Social Documentary was (and still is) a training initiative offered by the ZeLIG School for Documentary, Television and New Media, in Bolzano, supported by 6 partners from 4 different European countries and the European Union's Media Plus Programme.
ESoDoc took up the challenge of bringing together the demands of different players involved in documentary film production: independent documentary film makers and producers; non-governmental and non-profit organizations (NGOs and NPOs), whose needs for new communication strategies have become ever more pressing; television broadcasters and New Media.
ESoDoc's ambition is to create new production opportunities for European documentary makers interested in broadcasting films that draw attention to human rights, social justice and environmental protection, particularly in the developing world; and to encourage NGOs and NPOs to make more use of film and New Media as tools in development such as, for example, the use of Participatory Videos.
