Film workshop series for young peopleTvibit/NUFF in Tromsø, Mediefabrikken i Akershus and Du store verden! are cooperating on a film workshop series for young people in Troms and Akershus in 2010/2011. The series started in October 2010 and ends in June 2011.
This workshop series has 8 participants (4 from Troms and 4 from Akershus), and the main focus in this series is on working with a film project over time. Another aim is to give the participants the opportunity to find their own expressions or voices, and develop these.
The workshop series will consist of 4 gatherings, in October 2010 and in January, April and June 2011. In between gatherings, the participants work together in pairs developing a short film, with feedback from a workshop leader. We aim to have four short films ready for viewing in June 2011, and the films will premiere during NUFF 2011.
The first workshop gathering was at Mediefabrikken for a three- day workshop October 12-14 2010. This workshop was also made in cooperation with Film Fra Sør, and took place at the same period as the Film Fra Sør festival in Oslo. The first day of workshop was centered on a visit from filmmaker Kim Longinotto, who talked about her work while showing us clips from some of her films. The following two days the participants worked on ideas to their own short films, and presented these to each other.
The second gathering took place at Tvibit in Tromsø January 17-23 2011, during Tromsø International Film Festival (TIFF). During this workshop the participants worked with young musicians in a workshop where they made a short film (from idea to premiere) in one week. The musicians worked with film music parallel to our participants shooting and editing the film. The workshop was lead by film director Pål Jackman and film composer Herman Rundberg. The result of this workshop, the short film P ? the Movie premiered at the closing ceremony for TIFF. You can also enjoy the film here: www.vimeo.com/19128073
The third gathering took place during the Amandus Film Festival at Lillehammer April 12th to April 15th 2011. This time the participants received input on their films by editor Vidar Flataukan, a guided tour of the Norwegian Film School and the possibility to take part in Amadeus workshops and seminars. The final stop for our third gathering was a guided tour by curator Farhad Kalantary at the Retrospective ? film- and videoart in Norway 1960-90 exhibition, at the Stenersen Museum in Oslo.
The final gathering will take place in Tromsø in June, where the participants will take part in the NUFF (Nordic Youth Film Festival)- workshops and premiere their films on the Opening Night of NUFF 2011!
