Good news for documentary filmmakers looking to expand their skills. Barefoot Workshops, a New York based NGO, is hosting a filmmaking workshop in the Mother City from 11 November – 2 December, 2012.
Another workshop to look forward to, is at Encounters. This long-standing film festival takes place in Cape Town and Johannesburg from 7 – 24 June, 2012 and has a range of workshops, seminars and masterclasses for filmmakers to attend. Make sure you visit our website regularly for more information regarding film festivals near you.
These workshops are pitched at filmmakers with various levels of training. Barefoot’s workshops teach attendees a range of skills; from filming to editing to photography. They state:
“Past participants have included new and established filmmakers, writers, journalists, artists, photographers, graphic designers, theater actors and directors, musicians, educators and non profit organizations. Previous experience with filmmaking is NOT required. Producers, cinematographers, editors and writers with narrative experience who are considering working in non-fiction filmmaking are also encouraged to enroll. Photojournalists and print journalists who are looking to make the move to video journalism should strongly consider this workshop.”
