Aspiring young filmmaker? Open call for REC workshops on experimental filmmaking and violence prevention
Are you an aspiring young filmmaker? Are you interested in violence prevention and experimental filmmaking?
Take the chance to learn more about video production and live a mobility experience abroad, this is the opportunity for you!
We are looking for 15 motivated young people for the REC – Reflect Experiment Capture project to participate in 5 workshops in Palermo regarding experimental filmmaking and violence prevention.
The REC project aims at providing equal opportunities in education for young people by peer learning and non-formal methodologies, promoting innovative schemes to build a non-violence culture.
During the workshops, participants will learn about and experiment with different videomaking techniques in order to produce experimental videos on the prevention of violence. Next year, 4 of the participants will have the opportunity to travel to the REC International Experimental Video Festival in Indonesia where they will introduce their films and defend their ideas in front of an international public. This mobility is one of the international activities foreseen by the project, with the participation of 20 youth filmmakers from the 5 partner countries: Italy, Spain, Germany, Kenya and Indonesia.
