The workshop is the series of two-hour master-classes run by festival guests, prominent European authors. The topics are related to authorial approaches in contemporary documentary filmmaking. Discussions are mostly about the author's work on the screened films. Often through clips from previous works, we discuss the documentary process in their entire opus. The chief moderators of the workshop will be, as so far, the festival selector, Tue Steen Müller, and the festival director, Zoran Popović.
The official language of the workshop is English. The workshop is free of charge, but it doesn’t include the tickets for the films. If you are interested in participating, you are expected to watch all 7 films and to attend workshops regularly. For each film the master-class is held the day after the screening: the first one is on April 10th. The exact time and the place of the master-classes will be published on the festival website.
The workshop is primarily geared towards young film authors and film students as well as students in related art disciplines, but also to all who are interested in expanding their knowledge of the modern documentary film, primarily towards film professionals and documentaries filmmakers.
