Talent Workshop

International Talent Workshop

For the third year in a row within the Zagreb Jewish Film Festival the International Film workshop (International Talent Workshop) is organized, that will be held this year between May 20th and 28th. Ten participants, four from Croatia and six from other countries, will work under expert supervision on two short films. Young talents will have the opportunity to show their works also to the audience in Zagreb during a screening that will be held on May 29th.

Our wish with this workshop is to gather young filmmakers of different attitudes, religious beliefs, nationalities, with the goal of removing stereotypes and prejudice. Each year the International Talent Workshop rouses interest in various European countries. This year more than 80 young film enthusiasts and future professionals from 25 countries on three continents entered the International Talent Workshop competition. The selection commission had a difficult task to pick the 10 best participants.

The International Talent Workshop is the continuation of the tradition that we started in 2008 at the second Zagreb Jewish Film Festival. During this educational program the participants will have the opportunity to learn about making films through all its phases – from adapting the script, montage and finally the screening – with the assistance of renowned domestic and foreign lecturers. Young future filmmakers will have the opportunity to work with Branko Lustig, Martin Brinkler, Francesco Crispino, Branko Istvančić, Dalibor Matanić and Nenad Puhovski.

Wish them luck and support their beginnings by showing up at the screening of their works!
