WORKSHOP FOR FILM CRITIC FOR HIGH-SCHOOL STUDENTS
Media literacy and analytical thinking are the foundation in establishing the space of film theory, film criticism and film creativity, and Critical Camp is a project aiming at achieving exactly this. Initiated in 2017 by Filmkultura, association for education in audiovisual culture, Critical Camp is committed to observing, analyzing and writing, whereas it has been imagined in the form of a workshop and oriented towards high school students. Based on their experience so far, a workshop for high-school students will be held during the weekend (November 17th/18th), introducing the foundations of film criticism and film analysis, and also working on their own short critics, which will be subsequently published. Attendance to this workshop requires previous applying and will be held in English.
