July 10 - 14
Do you want to make a film about your activism? Or explore how, using the language of the film, you can help create social change?
Film can be used as a medium that can create movements in society in many different ways. In this course we therefore focus on what you are passionate about, who you are making a film for and how the film can be used as activism. Filmmaker Aka Hansen teaches based on her experiences as a feminist, indigenous people, activist, mother and woman in the film world. Come and participate in a course where we create a safe space where we can develop both our activism and our filmmaking.
Arrangement: During the week we watch relevant films, discuss them, talk about activism and do small exercises that kick start your creativity and filmmaking.
Previous knowledge: The course is for those who want to become more active in their film language. It is not necessary to have experience of making your own film, but it may help if you have some experience of the film language to be able to take the course in the best way.
