CinéDOC-Summer School 2019
The Noosfera Foundation is glad to announce its second edition of the CinéDOC Summer School, focusing on editing and the art of storytelling at the editing stage. This year we cooperate with the Film University “Konrad Wolf” from Potsdam-Babelsberg, Germany, and we will also welcome a group of students as well as a professor from this well-known film academy.
Film editing is often referred to as the “invisible art” because when it is well-practiced, the viewer can become so engaged that he or she is not even aware of the editor’s work. Editors play a dynamic role in the making of a film, especially in the making of a documentary film when the final story-line is often decided upon at the editing stage. A film editor must creatively work with the layers of images, story, dialogue, music, pacing, to effectively “re-imagine” and even rewrite the film to craft a cohesive whole.
We offer an intensive week of lectures, exercises and one-to-one meetings, conducted by an international team of specialists within the field of this year’s focus: Re-imagine.
The tutors of this year’s Summer School edition are: Dana Bunescu (Romania), film editor and winner of the Silver Bear Award for editing at the Berlinale; Tue Steen Müller (Denmark), film expert; Merle Jothe (Germany), director of photography and tutor at the Film University “Konrad Wolf” and Albert Elings, documentary film director, film editor and lecturer (the Netherlands Film Academy, the University of Amsterdam and the Rietveld Academy for Fine Arts).
This call is open for emerging filmmakers of all ages from Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, who have a documentary project in development, in production or post-production.
