Topic LOVE

Individual workshops:
VIDEO AND EXPERIMENTAL FILM - lecturers: Peter Kerekes and Alexandra Gojdičová
VIDEO AND EXPERIMENTAL FILM - lecturers: Róbert Lakatos and Arthur Bálint
PHOTOGRAPHY – lecturers: Juraj Fifik, Tomáš Manina
PERFORMANCE ART - lecturers: József Juhász R. and Nastja Säde Rönkkö

During each workshop, the participants would develope their skills creatively and shape their ideas into a final form. With the practical exercises they learn ways to express in film, photography and performance art. Both theoretical and practical part of the workshop would fill up the gap existing in education in Slovakia, unlike in the other countries, and that is media education and related fields. The work of participants would result in accomplished performances, video-films and photographs, which are to be presented on 9th August 2013 during our main partner’s event - Summer Film Seminar 4 Elements (www.4zivly.sk).

The expected number of viewers is a real challenge for the participants of the workshop. Authors get immediate feedback that could contribute to their artistic future work. Later on, all the works will be presented on the MPhilms web site www.mphilms.sk.

Workshop participants get passes for the Summer Film Seminar 4 Elements that allow them to attend every activity of the seminar. They get to watch interesting Slovak and world cinematography art works (of the same topic – LOVE) with the introductions of well known lecturers.
