Arché is a space for thinking and creative development, intending to provide tools to new film projects, as well as moments of reflection and trainning thus fostering and ensuring projects’ identity and quality.

Organized by Apordoc – Associação pelo Documentário and taking place in the scope of Nebulae, the industry programme of Doclisboa – International Film Festival Arché welcomes every year 12 projects in writing or early and final editing stages from Iberoamerican countries and Italy.

With the support of the Ibermedia Programme, Arché assings one participation fellowship for each of the 12 seelcted projects, which includes accomodation in Lisbon during Arché, the participation in all activities and a free pass to Doclisboa and Nebulae programme. Participants must ensure their travel costs to and from Lisbon.
