The workshop will take place online, FEST FILM LAB has always been a project of high level knowledge sharing and networking, on the next few months we will be hosting the workshops online, however we will maintain not only the standard of quality you came to expect with the best experts available, but also the networking and interactivity of the workshops:
- The workshop group will have a limited number of participants, we will not host more than 25 participants.
- We will maintain the tailor made aspects, with the possibility of troubleshooting projects you have been involved or challenges you are facing. We will introduce new tools to enhance the interactivity between participants.
- We have rearranged the session of the workshop that will take place on 4 days instead of the typical 2 days, so that the workshop is less overwhelming, as the typical two full days online would impact the capacities of the participants to absorb the content.
