FESTIVAL GOALS

    So far multimedia content is more accessible than ever, however schools still have difficulties keeping good film selections available for their specific audience..

Masterclass of Britta Krause & Nadia Dumouchel
Introduction to script editing – Britta Krause and Nadia Domouchel will talk about script editing and show us how many of the screenwriting labs worldwide do it themselves. The goal is to emphasize on the personal vision of the screenwriters which will then be used as a starting point for further screenplay development.

Open class „Music and contemporary cinema“
The two arts interact with each other since the beginning of cinema history. How do their relations change, how do they evolve in order to influence the spectators’ emotions? What makes a movie soundtrack good, what are the stages of its creation and what is the relationship between the director and the composer? How is music involved in the filmmaking process– from the preparation of the movie to its post-production?
