Restart invites all those interested to apply for the 11th annual School of Documentary Film 2021/2022, which will be held under the guidance of foreign and Croatian mentors and lecturers in Zagreb from October 2021 to February 2022. Deadline for applications is September 9, 2021, all the information about the application procedure can be found on the official website of the program.
The School of Documentary Film will be organised as a 5-month intensive programme run by both international and Croatian lecturers and mentors who will provide the School’s participants with basic and advanced skills needed to film their own documentary. The idea behind the School’s programme is that the medium of film is available to everyone today – thanks to widely spread technologies and the common distribution of knowledge, anyone can express themselves through the language of film. This is precisely our main goal:to help participants make their own documentary film using the tools at their disposal.
To attend the School, applicants do not need any previous film experience or familiarity with the technical aspects of film production. All that is required is a strong motivation and a desire to pursue their interest in documentary film in the future. All those interested in the School’s programme should have basic computer skills, access to a computer which can be equipped with editing software and to a camera which can be used for recording (DSLR camera, video camera, mobile phone…).
Restart’s regular lecturers at the School of Documentary Film are Igor Bezinović, Hrvoslava Brkušić, Borna Buljević, Katerina Duda, Ana Hušman, Vanja Jambrović, Bojan Mrđenović, Dinka Radonić, Oliver Sertić and Nebojša Slijepčević
The classes will take place on Tuesdays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Zagreb.
