ThinkFilM! is a student symposium dedicated to the discussion of problems in current film culture and innovative projects in the field of film communication (for more detailed information see below).
Admission to the Symposium is free, but it is requested to register via mail before the 6th of July.
The Symposium opens Thursday at 6 pm with a curated programme of film clips and shorts that all address questions of reflexivity in film. Saturday is dedicated to polish film culture, problems of repertory cinema, the impact of european film festivals for indian independent films, questions of film funding, ethics of restoration and the impact of digitization on documentary forms.
The Saturday programme engages with film education and its current state in Poland and the Czech Republic and in what way Museums and film festivals can be involved. The topics of the last panel are criticism and essayism as a possible form of criticism, proposing the question of why film museums have had to face fundamental criticism considering their raison d´être. The Symposium closes with a round table discussion with guests.
The whole Program can be found attached and on the Website.
