The HaitiDocs program
HaitiDocs is the result of a partnership between the APACH Workshops (HELB's Cooperative Audiovisual Productions Workshops) in Belgium, the MWEM Foundation in Haiti and Docmonde. In 2018, responding to a call for projects from Wallonie Bruxelles International (WBI), funding was granted to launch a support program for Haitian authors and producers wishing to document the social realities of their country.
In 2019 and 2020 this programme consisted of a production course and script writing workshops, followed by filming and editing workshops enabling filmmakers to put into practice their film concept and present a sequence from their films. At the end of the workshops the filmmakers and their Haitian producers go on to participate in the International co-production forum with their producers, distributors and the funders.
In 2020, the programme’s activities have needed to adapt to the socio-political situation in Haiti as well as the state of health emergency declared by the government until 20 July XNUMX.
