The workshop will include prior preparation and working sessions during the festival. Participants will receive free of charge festival accreditations (access to all film screenings!).

Film criticism workshop
14. 4.–19. 4. 2020 / Application deadline: 1. 4. 2020

How do genre classics achieve their cult status? How do they attack our senses and crawl under our skin? How do they establish, employ and transgress genre conventions? And what are these conventions? We will tackle all these questions and more at the six-day film criticism workshop Shivering Skin, Sharpening Gaze, organized by KINO! Film Society. Participants’ 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, preparing the participants for their own writing. Texts will be published on Kurja Polt and Ostrenje Pogleda websites, with a selection of best works featured in KINO! magazine.

Maximum number of participants: 10. Participation fee: 15 €. Participants will receive a festival accreditation with free access to all film screenings. Workshop mentor is Dr Maja Krajnc, editor-in-chief of KINO! magazine, assisted by film critic Robert Kuret.
