Participants will be covering the festival and industry events, delivering film reviews and interviews. The organizers will team-up with Film New Europe to give more exposure and promote emerging journalist talents.
Workshops are designed for critics under the age of 30 with proficiency skills in written and spoken English. All participants are granted with travel expenses and accommodation in youth hostel. We also guarantee an unforgettable adventure and give a unique opportunity to meet the contemporary filmmakers from all over the world face-to-face.
