In the course "Understanding your film vocation", we focus on finding the core that makes you a good filmmaker. We explore different techniques and methods for producing the stories you want to tell, with a focus on finding your driving forces and your own voices.

- What is your passion?

- Who are you making films for?

- Why is your story important to tell?

These and other relevant issues will be the focus of the course where the filmmaker Aka Hansen teaches based on his experiences as a feminist, indigenous people, activist, mother and woman in the film world. Through lectures mixed with both joint and individual work, we find the spark that makes you a good film narrator - and helps you formulate and understand your very film calling.

The course is suitable for you who want to get on with your film idea, or you who would like to make a film but who need guidance and guidance in formulating and understanding what you want to tell.
