Film criticism workshop
18. 4. – 22. 4. 2018 / Application deadline: April 9

Is your vision getting blurry? Are you feeling apathetic? Have you forgotten what it’s like to shiver with excitement? Then join us for a very special film criticism workshop Shivering Skin, Sharpening Gaze, organized by KINO! Film Society for all nature’s creatures aged 18 and above.

We will sharply gaze into the lion’s mouth and the belly of the beast, staring nature gone wild boldly in the face. Participants’ daily meetings will take place in the pleasantly thrilling festival atmosphere at the Slovenian Cinematheque. The viewings of selected genre treats will be followed by in-depth discussions and examinations of the specifics and subversions of genre cinema, preparing the participants for their own writing. Texts will be honed through discussions with the mentors, who will provide constructive criticism, comments and guidelines. All finished work will be published on Kurja Polt and Ostrenje Pogleda websites.

Attention! Maximum number of participants: 10. Participation fee: 15 €. Workshop mentor is Dr Maja Krajnc, editor-in-chief of KINO! magazine, assisted by film critic Petra Meterc.
