Hardship Fund for Lebanese Schools: 1st Masterclass organised by Civica Scuola di Cinema Luchino Visconti held on March 25, more to come an April 29th and May 13th

Civica Scuola di Cinema Luchino Visconti @ 30° Festival del Cinema Africano, d’Asia e America latina 

 INCONTRI DELLA CIVICA: Alaa Eddine Aljem

Within the Hardship Fund for Lebanese Schools, a project supported by GEECT and embraced by Civica Scuola di Cinema Luchino Visconti to help the three Lebanese Schools and Universities of Cinema which are living difficult times: the Institut d’études scéniques, audiovisuelles et cinématographiques (IESAV) of the University of Beirut, the Académie Libanaise des Beaux Arts (ALBA) of the University of Balamand and the Division of Audio Visual Arts – (DAVA) of Notre Dame University in Louaize. 

The first masterclass took place on March 25th, it featured Alaa Eddine Aljem, a young Moroccan director and screenwriter who, after training both at home and abroad (at INSAS in Brussels), directed several short films, including The Desert Fish (2015), which gained great acclaim on the film festival circuit. His first work, Le Miracle du saint inconnu, released in 2019, is a comedy with a burlesque tone that tells a contemporary Morocco, victim of superstitions and climate change. The film premiered at the 2019 Cannes Semaine de la critique and received several awards at international festivals (Locarno, Valladolid, Tangier). 

During the meeting, conducted by Alessandra Speciale – co-artistic director of FESCAAL together with Annamaria Gallone – the director got into dialogue with the students about his artistic and professional experience, retracing the stages, from his first short films to the success of his debut work, up to the preparation of new projects, including his second feature film. 

Prior to the Masterclass, MCSC and Lebanese students received exclusive special content made available by the director. 

The next meetings will be live streamed on the Facebook and YouTube channels of the City Film School of Milan.  https://www.facebook.com/scuoladicinema.milano

Call for participation in promotion opportunity

GEECT has reached an agreement with Cineuropa, one of the main sources of information on European cinema, that creates the opportunity for ten GEECT schools to be featured in this media in the near future. This participation would increase the visibility of the European film schools by publishing a series of interviews to the head of studies (or other lecturers) of schools who are part of GEECT. These interviews will give the speakers the chance to highlight their study programmes, their international profile, professional opportunities, bursaries and how they’re reacting/teaching during the pandemic. Besides these interviews and exclusive pieces, cineuropa will also upgrade the info on each school available in their website. Interviews will begin being published March 2021.

We now release this call to all those schools who are interested in benefiting from this opportunity. Ten schools will be selected to benefit from this opportunity. The principles of diversity and inclusion that guide GEECT activity will be the main criteria in selecting the ten schools in case more than that number respond to the call.

Please send your declaration of interest no later than March 5th to geect.chair@mail.ulusofona.ptSubscribe our newsletter!Copyright © 2021 GEECT, All rights reserved.

Reminder and new deadline – Call for papers for the GEECT Film School Archives conference: Remembrance of Things to Come

Re-imagining the Past and Constructing the Future in the Film School Archive
Because of the new lockdowns due to Covid 19, just as students are returning, the deadline for proposals for this conference has been extended to 31st January 2021. The conference will be held from June 20th to 23rd 2021, either at the University of Westminster in London, or online if the situation doesn’t allow a physical event. Please see the attached call for papers.
 
The conference aims to explore why we should keep archives of student work and what makes this work interesting and important, and also how best to archive, sharing best practice from Film Schools and from the wider world of moving image preservation, restoration and distribution. So, if you have something to share about either the technical aspects of archiving and preservation, or about the historical, cultural and social importance of film school archives, we would love to hear from you.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Research Week Future Narratives at RITCS

RITCS has organized for the second time a research week titled Future Narratives, from the 25th until the 29th of January, 2021. Artistic researchers—seniors and PhD students—will present their work, trajectory, their artistic and theoretic research results. They will invite kindred spirits, interlocutors, artists, and intellectuals who challenge them – people who have something to say and to show. They will present in the form that suits their story best: workshops, lectures, panel discussions, webinars, performances, film screenings, and more. 

Technology is not new, and certainly the technology of the theatre has a long, impressive history. Telling stories, creating illusions: theatre technology has always played an important role in this. In the international research and teaching project A Canon of Theatre Technical History, nine European institutions of higher art education are working together to make students and audiences aware of the richness of that history.

Within this larger whole, Chris Van Goethem (RITCS) and Anders Larsson (UniArts, Stockholm) have made a presentation as part of the PWO (practice-based scientific research) project fading lights in which the history of theatre lighting is central: from candle to LED. Historical lighting techniques can also shed a figurative light on artistic developments in the theatre.

What happens when one switches from one light source to another, from gas light to incandescent lamp (or vice versa), from ‘warm’ light to LED. How does this transition influence the artistic process, the acting, the scenography, the professions? And how does this transition take place? And what can we learn from this for future technology changes?   
 
Chris and Anders tell this exciting story, using images and a scale model that conjures up the many transformations.
