Exploration Workshop 2019

Are you young and you think you can change the world? Bring this feeling to the Exploration Workshop! Make the first step to encourage change. What could be more challenging than someone telling you that you can make a film in five days? No, it’s not easy. It’s difficult, it’s exhausting but completely possible. And more than that, it is interesting, creative, motivating, and exciting! It’s  an intensive program to learn how to make a film while you make a film!

Theory is important but practice is just as important. Together with the workshop tutors , you will learn the basics of documentary filmmaking and immediately plunge into making your own short documentary film. It’s a workshop in which your participation is important, your ideas are being  implemented and change can be made by anyone.

In a very short time you will learn a lot not only about filmmaking, but also about yourself, your limits, your power of persuasion, how you can communicate with people, you will learn about courage, boldness and creativity.

Apply for the Exploration Workshop because the world is constantly changing. Be part of that change!
