"Dreaming the City" - Festival Workshop feat. 48 Hour Film Challenge

The workshop will be run by film teachers Dave Green and John Digance who have run successful academic and creative courses in the University and Community sectors in Britain, Sweden, Spain, Russia, Pakistan and China.

In their words: "This year’s workshop theme is Dreaming the City. Berlin is an exciting Cosmopolitan City where there can be pleasant daydreams or of course nightmares. Dreams of moving from place to place, inner space and outer space, public and private, aspiration, desire and dead ends or crossing physical and metaphorical borders. Use any style you wish, realist or fantasy, to explore the dreams the City can inspire. We will watch and discuss short films and extracts that are related to the workshop topic - and then, two days later, your short films."

All events, meetings and screenings as part of the workshop will be in English. Participants will have to provide their own equipment and editing facilities.
