Civil society organizations, activists and opinion leaders who want to use documentary film as a means of expression and a tool to raise public awareness, as well as to encourage participatory and critical thinking about urgent issues in society, are invited to register for the INTERACTION workshop organized by Moldox Lab, which will take place from 6-12 September 2021 in Cahul.
In the INTERACTION workshop, you will learn how to produce quality audio-visual material for the online environment, how to use filming equipment and video editing software, but most importantly, how to do storytelling so that you can most convincingly represent the cause you are fighting for and be the voice of the people who need the support of funders, partners and the general public.
As a result of the workshop, you will practice your newly acquired skills to produce your own short film, guided by Croatian-German tutor Denis Pavlovic. Last but not least, you will have the opportunity to receive feedback from experts from the international film industry present at the Moldox Documentary Film Festival for Social Change, who could become potential partners for your projects.
Who can participate?
Activists, representatives of NGOs or civil society organizations, professionals in human rights and other fields, media representatives, documentary filmmakers, volunteers, and anyone who uses or is interested in using film as a tool to promote social change are encouraged to participate.
