DOCLAB Workshop – Face to Face: Refugees in Europe

November 11-14, 2015 /// CEU MEDIA LAB /// OSA Archivum

In 2015 Verzio DocLab will be focusing on the refugee crisis in Europe. Every single face has a name and a story but in the current flow of refugees they are often lost. We want DocLab participants to reveal these individual faces, voices, stories, and to show people escaping war and destruction as fellow human beings.

The workshop participants will make short films about one person or one family. The film can also be about a place, a situation or attitudes represented by the citizens in European countries. These portraits and short videos are imagined as personal statements calling for understanding and action. There is no restriction on form, the stories however should be well researched and based on real stories. The work can be experimental but should foreground individual personalities and aim for impact. The workshop participants should arrive with footage shot prior to the workshop and will get tutoring in editing and narrative structure. The resulting works (or extracts from work in progress) will be screened at the festival and circulated on-line. We aim at raising awareness and calling for a change in attitudes towards refugees.

The workshop is free and open to filmmakers and students interested in documentary and human rights. Basic filming experience is required. To apply send a project description and CV to info@verzio.org with the title DocLab Application until October 25.
