Between January 25-27, 2013 NISI MASA is organizing GENERATOR - Youth Audiovisual Forum in Strasbourg. We are looking for 120 participants aged 18 – 35 who will not only be debating the future of audiovisual culture in Europe along with experts and policy makers, but will also take part in a number of daily workshops.

Expect a NISI MASA festival!
Expect Kino Kabaret, where 40 adrenaline-driven film-makers, will be on a movie making frenzy. On the final evening of the forum your films will be screened and frugal and fun filmmaking will truly make a splash on European audiovisual culture. What is Kino Kabaret?
Expect a scriptwriting marathon where participants will be guided in bringing their ideas closer to the screen by learning about cinematographic story telling through an intense submersion into the world of inspiration, confrontation and going crazy. Battling with a promising idea, the NISI MASA trainers will guide you and help you develop it. Come to Strasbourg and be a part of writing the story of GENERATOR.
To be a part of the Scriptwriting Marathon, click here to apply! (Deadline 28thDecember)

We will be selecting 20 participants with a passion for cinema and a knack for words who will get a chance to learn more on writing about films. Previous experience in film journalism, professional or otherwise, is not required. We're hoping to help you polish your skills in order to help you make your critical voices heard.
Expect a workshop on genre films moderated by 7 Tape Productions, who will talk about the ways to start a genre based film project, concretely a horror movie – from casting to directing. Also, if you'd like to present your film and get feedback from other filmmakers, the “Feedback Me” panel is just for you.
If you are a cultural manager or work at an NGO, you can participate in culture management trainings provided by experienced trainers from our member associations.
Besides the workshops you'll have the opportunity to attend debates and panels with European audiovisual professionals, experts and policy makers.
