WORKSHOP

Sertaç Koyuncu

Exercises on Filmic “Genrification”

Sertaç Koyuncu will conduct a workshop on blurring the boundaries between popular cinema and art cinema. He will give three short lectures on the relationship between film genres and sociological, historical, environmental, philosophical imaginations that inspire artistic forms. He will share some scenes from his short films “Suffocating with Manners” and “Everything I Know About Horror”, in which he tries synthesizing film genres and social imagination. At the end of each lecture, participants will do exercises on the creativity of "genrification." The participants will brainstorm their own genre-hybrid film ideas by using social imagination in groups. The workshop will end with the participants preparing a film prospectus.

WORKSHOP

Brian den Hartog

Visual Suspense in Documentary Filmmaking

Brian den Hartog will host a workshop on how to explore visual and experimental elements within documentary storytelling. The workshop starts with a screening of his filmic essay 'A Dialogue with Cyberspace', a metaphorical quest on how we experience our physical self in an increasingly virtual world. He'll share some of his visual inspirations and how he explores hybrid forms - combining fiction and documentary - in his other works. From there the participants themselves will perform a visual exploration with a camera. The workshop ends with a viewing of this material.

Brian den Hartog

​Brian den Hartog (1989) finished his studies in Audio Visual Arts at RITCS School of Arts Brussels in 2018 with high distinction. It’s hard to categorize Brian's work into one specific genre. His films are often born from a documentary origin: A character, phenomena or event that triggers him to explore. From there he starts his research which he eventually translates into a filmic universe that immerses the viewer in an experience in which the lines between what's real and what's not - between documentary and fiction - start to dissolve.
