Grierson DocLab 2020 to move online due to COVID-19
We have now finished assessing all applications for the 2020 iteration of our Grierson DocLab training scheme and have a new schedule for interviews and the DocLab residential training, which will move online.
- Week commencing 15 June – all applicants will be contacted, with successful applicants invited to interview
- Week commencing 22 June – online interviews will take place
- Week commencing 10 August – the Grierson DocLab residential training for successful interviewees will take place online
Given the current restrictions due to COVID-19, we still have more planning to do around the alternative provision of the Shoot/Edit weekend, the Sheffield Doc/Fest visit and placements with production companies, including the two longer Netflix placements.
However, once interviews have taken place and our 16 trainees have been selected, they will have joined the Grierson DocLab community and will have our ongoing support. We will continue to work with trainees and industry partners to set up their mentorships and deliver the rest of the fantastic opportunities that the DocLab scheme has to offer.
We would like to thank all applicants for their patience and understanding whilst we have navigated this unknown territory.
