Sarajevo Talent Campus 2011 Focus
"Our Time, My Point Of View"
Filmmakers have the ability to show how they see the world they live in. Whether their work is fictional or documentary, filmmakers are able to show us the personal connection they have to the story. The audience can relate to the filmmaker's vision through the structure and content of the film.
In a world dominated by ongoing information filmmakers have a lot of choice, but are also forced to select carefully. While technologically speaking, it might have become easier to make film nowadays, to express oneself and show a vision has increasingly become a challenge as well. Finding an original voice that is heard and recognized by others is not easy. Asking yourself what matters to you and what truly makes your clock tick will help you defining how to tell compelling stories that will matter to others as well.
For the 5th Sarajevo Talent Campus, the view of emerging filmmakers from Southeastern Europe does matter. This year's programme will focus on the point of view of various filmmakers, and address the difficulty but necessity of decisions that need to be taken throughout the creative process of filmmaking. Whether fiction, documentary, experimental, hybrid and transmedia filmmaking: choosing the strongest way to express your vision will be conveyed through an exciting programme of lectures, panel discussions and active critical debates on one hand, complemented by workshops, practical tutorials, film screenings and festival excursions.
