Submissions for the FILMMAKING SEMINAR we co-designed with Doclisboa’20 are open until October 2nd!

This year’s DocLisboa online Filmmaking Seminar will explore radical filmmaking practices through collectively built research and conversation.

Four open dialogues will engage the work of the guest filmmakers Ana Elena Tejera, Daniel Kötter, Mike Hoolboom and Tatiana Mazú González, presented at the 18th edition of Doclisboa. The selected participants will come together to react to, unpack and cooperatively deconstruct preconceptions and find useful ways to approach the relevant questions and meaningful insights that the work of these filmmakers have to offer.

The Filmmaking Seminar is free, subjected to a selection process, and open to all national and international participants.

It will take place on October 24th, 25th and 31st and November 1st.
