The Festival Reporters are let loose!
They might interview you on camera, they might take pictures, maybe they write about you and post it online – these are our festival reporters. This year, Lichtspiele e.V. offers a workshop for teenagers that are interested in digital journalism. In preparation for the festival, they learn all about New Media theory, now it’s time to dive into the practical side of things.
Follow them at:
This project could be realised by the support of „Think Big“.
Following the Over-16 films of Lichtspiele’s programme there is time for filmmakers to network. How did you achieve those camera movements, light up the night scene and how did you manage to do these great …effect shots?
The Lichtspiele-jury will also be available for feedback and advice. In addition, there is plenty of opportunity to find out about possible routes into the industry: Filmuniversität Babelsberg will be on site.
Aspiring filmmakers, who have not submitted a film this year are also welcome. Please send us a short e-mail: email@example.com.
