L’inis kitchen party

L’inis is setting the table for instructors and graduates from its documentary program and documentary direction mini-program. On the menu is a discussion of the key ingredients that go into a documentary: finding a subject, choosing protagonists, building a trust-based relationship, and the project’s evolution from initial idea to final product. The public is invited to participate in the lively conversation, which will be accompanied by a screening of several films made in the last year.

Presented in collaboration with l'inis
