ABOUT CIRCLE

CIRCLE is a unique international training program and safe space for women and non-binary filmmakers working both in documentary and fiction. Our flagship programme is Women Doc Accelerator, a year-round training initiative, open to projects and professionals in all stages. In 2023 we launched Fiction Orbit, an intensive one-off residential workshop dedicated to mid-career filmmakers developing scripted projects.
