Brač Film Festival workshop | A call for participation

Brac Film Festival invites all interested young filmmakers, film students and enthusiasts to apply for the workshop that will be held from 9th to 13th of August in Supetar on the island of Brač! This year they have prepared a documentary film workshop with accompanying lectures.

During the four-day workshop, the participants will be introduced to the basics of documentary narrative, the legitimacy of documentary film production, the ways in which themes are dealt with, the creation of synopsis and screenplay for documentary film, the preparation and maintenance of interviews as well as the practical part of the film. During the workshop, participants will be accompanied by a mentor to record a short documentary about Brac Film Festival together with an overview of all events and interviews of leaders and guests. Participants will be divided into different roles (director, filmmaker, editor, director assistant, reporter, micromancer, etc.). The workshop will be run by producers from an award-winning production company that has offices in several world metropolises (including Zagreb). The closing film will show the last nights of the Festival in a crowded summer movie theater. In parallel with the workshop, a masterclass will be held on “How to fund your documentary”, led by prominent producer Niels Mann, who was in charge of RTL television program development, program director and production director at German and Croatian affiliates.

There will also be a presentation of the London Film School where the director of the Festival, also a master’s degree student at the prominent school, will present all the potentials and programs of the school, from undergraduate and graduate to short-term workshops.

All participants older than 16 years of age can apply to the workshop, regardless of previous experience. Given the number of applicants workshop will be divided into two parts (beginner and advanced).

There are two options of accomodation, the camp or the apartment.

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!

Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.

BY SEA ///

There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.

First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.

Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!

BY AIR ///

Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač DeluxeRent a Motorino or M&B rent. Check them out!

Once you’re on the island, rent a car, use taxis or local transportation. For online booking with discount, click here.
