Emerging Women Filmmakers Incubator
The Incubator is a talent-focused development programme structured over five one-day workshops across a year. While directors come to the Incubator with a project, our main aim is to provide specific knowledge, skills, connections and inspiration to enable each participant to advance themselves and their careers.

“Being a part of the DEGNZ’s Incubator has been a highly motivating and encouraging experience. It is rare to get a chance to talk frankly with such experienced practitioners, but this programme created a space in which such useful dialogue could take place. The Incubator also provided regular meetings with other filmmakers at the same stage in their career.”
