Film Journalism Workshop

How do we talk about the films we like? In a few lines, in a comment on a post asking for “good films”, in a long discussion with friends during an evening out, or in a long article, all of the above most likely root into passion.

And passion also means a potential to influence others, to “contaminate” them with our favourite films. The film journalism workshop is a good opportunity to give shape to the thoughts on films (or parts of films) that stay with us after we leave the cinema.

For younger children, the workshop is designed to awaken their passion for film, to show them how films are not just longer clips, but wonderful stories.
