DOC AT WORK - CAMPUS
The Campus is focused on the work done by Italian film schools, in the belief that their activity plays a strategic role as regards not only training, but also the entire audio-visual sector. We believe film schools are like outposts that offer a vantage point on the work done by young talents as well as training grounds in which the new generations of cineastes are allowed to experiment. Doc at Work – Campus establishes a dialogue with and support the activity of the most representative Italian schools. In 2017, we selected the films made by students of the Turin Scuola Holden, the Milan Civica scuola di cinema Luchino Visconti, and the Naples Centro FilmaP – Atelier di Cinema del Reale. Developed over four days, all participants were followed by a team of professional tutors.
A selection of films in production or rough-cut - selected through a call - will be presented to an audience of international experts (distributors, commissioning editors and film buyers) with the purpose of co-financing and sales. A workshop - chaired by qualified tutors - will be addressed to the directors and producers of the selected projects to maximize the success of their presentations to the audience of experts.
The videolibrary festival allows all accredited professionals in convenient locations to view individual titles of the Official Selection.
DOC AT WORK offers seminars and workshops, held by internationally renowned professionals, aimed at those to those interested in deepening knowledge of technical and formal aspects of filmmaking.
The new edition of DOC AT WORK will be held in Florence, from October 10th to October 17th 2017, on the occasion of the 59th Festival dei Popoli.
