Documentary workshop

Käenkuja 1 B, 00500 Helsinki
Kansalaisfoorumin toimintatila

The documentary workshop introduces documentary film as a medium of expression through theory and practical training

The documentary workshop introduces documentary film as a medium of expression through theory and practical training and aims to develop the participants’ interests and skills. The participants will watch films together and discover the great variety of film making styles and methods. Inspired by this input, participants will be working on their own films, alone or in groups but under guidance of the tutor. The participants will find and develop their own ideas into films, from writing to editing. At the end of the last workshop day the films will be screened to the participant group.

In November, after the separate workshops, a web event, or a micro festival, will take place, where the audience can watch the short documentaries and hear the stories behind them. All willing workshop participants are welcome to screen their documentaries there.

Anyone is welcome to join the course without previous experience or an idea of a film. The participants will be using their own filming equipment, which can be as simple as a smartphone.

The course will be held in English. The documentary workshop is tutored by documentary film director Pieter-Jan van Damme.
