Seminar description

Simulating a lab, we will invite 3 specific guests (Director, Producer, World Sales) working on the threshold between the Art Market and Cinema Industry, to join us within the context of the seminar and give feedback and insight to the selection of Projects. The purpose is to gain feedback and get an in-depth look at the potential of one’s project. Exploring the strengths and possible directions for further development. But the purpose is also to generate a strategy for realising the project.

Through the seminar, we hope to gain a creative and pragmatic understanding of what the market is for film as an Art Form. We also hope to feed off the experience of our guests and understand what possibilities there are for navigating this field and realising our projects. The Seminar is intended for students who are working with film (fiction, documentary, hybrid or experimental) and are in the process of realising their Diploma and who wish to start thinking about where they are heading after the KHM.

Only six projects can be discussed within the period of the seminar, as we would like each guest to interact with each project. Participation as an observer without a project is possible and desired.
