Members representing the entire NISI MASA network were present at the Early Melons International Student Film Festival in Bratislava (Slovakia) from the 18th - 20th March, for the occasion of our annual General Assembly.
Early Melons shows a diverse selection of Slovak and foreign student films. One of its basic aims is to enrich the offer of audiovisual cultural events in Slovakia and get Slovak audiences closer to the phenomenon of student cinematography. The Early Melons project aims to encourage cultural exchange and partnership between different countries and schools.
After filmmaking explorations of Paris, Istanbul, Kars and Budapest, the NISI MASA “Visions Of” workshop went to Prague, from 22nd to 29th of August 2010. Prague is a place of history and a crossroad of culture. More and more young people are travelling around Europe. But they don’t often really go into the city itself and its social and cultural diversity. This meeting aimed to go further that the tourist point of view and make the young people reflect about the European diversity thanks to the social cross-road that could represent a city and the exchange between young people.
Script&Pitch Workshops (now under the header of TorinoFilmLab Training), in collaboration with Power to the Pixel, has launched a new call for participants for Writer's Room, a workshop focusing on the dynamics of developing a pre-selected transmedia project in a team.
The project at the centre of this year’s workshop is written and developed by Michel Reilhac (Head of ARTE France Cinema). The selected participants will work together under the tutorship of story editor Gino Ventriglia during a period of 10 months, attending 3 residential workshops in March (Sweden), June (France) and November (Italy) 2011.
Script&Pitch Workshops is an advanced development course for European scriptwriters and story editors. Candidates from the rest of the world can apply as well through Script&Pitch Workshops International.
The second edition of Nisimazine IDFA will be held from the 18th of November untill the 26th of November 2010 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, during the 23rd edition of the biggest documentary festival in the world!
