Between the 3rd and 18th of September 2016, you have the chance to feed your creative adrenaline within the CINEIMPACT Film Summer Academy, an international program dedicated to Art and Social Cinema taking the innovative form of Creative Documentaries, Docu-Fiction Storytelling, Visual Anthropology and Social Action. The best film projects will be awarded with prizes amounting to 4000 Euro.
The program will take place in Romania’s Câmpulung Muscel region – a field of exceptional socio-cultural landscape offered by the outstanding Carpathian Mountains. The film development area will be centered in the town of Câmpulung, which magically interweaves the diverse experiences of the past century: old-fashioned rurality, aristocratic heritage and post-industrial urbanity, that create a cinematic meeting point of pre- and post- communist society.
The candidates should have experience in one or more of the following fields: film directing, cinematography, editing, visual anthropology, visual arts, visual activism. The candidates can apply for the following Film Production Sections of the summer academy:
- Art Cinema(films dedicated to Art House Filmmaking)
- Social Cinema(films dedicated to Social Action Filmmaking)
The best 12 students and professionals, selected based on motivation, experience and creative personalities, will be invited to attend the 15 days of the CINEIMPACT adventure. Through a tailored-made and hands-on filmmaking program, the summer academy will explore innovative methods of CINEMA and IMPACT production, while transgressing the boundaries of fiction, non-fiction, visual anthropology and social activism.
Participants will be guided in this cognitive-creative adventure by three tutors: Ger Duizjings, Vintilă Mihăilescu, Ionuţ Piţurescu. During the field research, development, production and post-production of the films, the participants will be inspired by master-classes held by invited experts. The film crews will be supported by production assistants with deep knowledge of the investigated area. All the 12 authors of the resulting films will be tutored in building optimal distribution strategies for their film projects.
“Pattern or Not (Şablon sau nu)”, one of the 6 films produced in the previous edition of the Film Summer Academy after 15 days of creative work of an international team comprising Dorottya Balczo (director and cinematographer) and Andra Nedelcu (director and visual artist), was successfully selected and propelled to participate in one of the sections dedicated to short film (SFC) at Cannes Film Festival 2016.
