Cross-Border Cinematography

Seminar for festival participants

In cooperation with Northern Character International Film & TV Festival, Filmklynge Nord - a network of film makers in Northern Norway -  invites festival participants (film directors and producers) to take part in a mini-seminar on Saturday December 1, 2018.

Here, film makers from the Barents Region countries: Norway, Russia , Sweden and Finland will gather to get to know each other across national borders and have the possibility to discuss ideas for future cooperation. During the two hours workshop, participants will introduce themselves and present their companies for each other, then work in small groups to exchange and discuss ideas for possible future joint projects. The results will be summarized in a final plenary session.

The main objective of this seminar is to establish contacts for future cross-border cooperation. Each workshop participant is supposed to prepare a project idea that he would like to present to the other participants. Proposals for participation have to be sent in advance to the festival coordinator of the respective country. A total of 20-25 applicants will be selected for the workshop.
