Storytelling Seminar as a special event in Budapest
The first thematic seminar organized by DocNomads with guest participants out of the programme curriculum was held in the 11 and 12 of February at the conference hall of Premier Kultcafé in Budapest.
The seminar was lectured by guest participants external to DocNomads staff, namely Ildikó Enyedi, a renowned Hungarian film director and screenwriter whose film “Body and Soul” recently won the Golden Bear at the Berlinale; Maria Zmarz-Koczanowicz, one of the most prolific Polish documentary filmmakers who is also a professor at Łódz Film School; and Susan Brand, an editor and edit consultant with twenty years of experience in broadcast and independent film. John Burgan, himself a writer, director, editor and lecturer served as the seminar guest moderator.
The “Storytelling Seminar” was launched as a special event aiming to extend the boundaries of the regular curricular programme of DocNomads by focusing in specific thematics within an intensive two-day format of lectures and workshops. Forthcoming editions of this initiative will focus in different overarching topics. Although this seminar was held for attendance of the currently enrolled classes of DN6 and DN7 it is intended to open the event to the public in the near future.
