The Nature of images

Call for entries opened for the first international workshop for filmmakers in Basilicata with one of the most talented and original authors of the new international cinema, Michelangelo Frammartino. The intensive workshop will be both theoretical and practical.

The workshop is open to ten filmmakers of any age or nationality with practical experience in filmmaking (in its various stylistic and linguistics projections) and will take place in the scenic area of Teana (situated in the National Park of the Pollino, South of Italy) from December 11th to 19th 2010. Entries are free as well as boarding and lodging costs to all the invited filmmakers. Three of the ten slots will be reserved to participants born and/or currently residing in Basilicata, Italy.

Deadline for submissions next November 19th.


The best films made during the workshop will be collected on a DVD compilation and distributed in the main international cinema circuits.

Starting from Michelangelo Frammartino poetics, each participant will have the chance to enhance their knowledge in film techniques, as well as having the opportunity to share and to compare their own stylistic and formal approach through the production of a few digital short films through interaction with the local community and their cultural identities.
