Workshop: Do you speak film?

What is film language, who speaks it, and how can it help us overcome prejudices?

Our workshop “Do you speak film?” invites young people with migration experience to curate a film program under professional guidance and present it to an audience as part of the 40th Internationales Frauen Film Fest Dortmund+Köln. Due to the consistent focus on visually expressive works with little or no language, young film enthusiasts with little knowledge of German can explicitly participate in the project!

Procedure: In a first step, we will screen several short films and discuss them with each other in the course of about six preliminary meetings. From the best contributions you will then curate a program for the festival and prepare its content. This includes the writing of moderation texts as well as the introduction of the films at the festival – in German as well as in your respective first language.

The workshop is for young people aged 10 and over from Dortmund and the surrounding area with migration experience or international origin.

Workshop period: beginning of February until end of April 2023
Festival period: April 18 to 23, 2023
Participation in the workshop is free of charge!
