Exploration Workshop 2016

The Exploration Workshop is geared towards young people eager to explore the film medium and give them a chance to be guided by professionals to make a short film on a social topic of their concern. It will also include team building, self-confidence, personality training and focus on increased social awareness and creative storytelling.

During the 5-day intensive workshop, the participants will learn the fundamental tools of documentary filmmaking including Camera and Sound Recording, Basics of Documentary Scriptwriting and Editing. The participants will apply what they learn by creating short group projects in production workshops under the guidance of their instructors. Following production and post-production of each project, the groups will screen their work in the class and will engage in discussion and constructive feedback. The finalized projects will be projected on the big screen on the closing day of the festival.
