In 2019 we continue our partnership with UNESCO regional center in Sofia to expand and promote documentaries dealing with this topic.

BDC Discoveries 2019  takes place in 3 modules: Sofia (May 2019), Prizren (August 2019) and Leipzig (October/November 2019).

The workshop is fully conducted in English and proficiency in written and spoken English is obligatory.
