“Whether they are aware of it or not, all filmmakers are using ideas and techniques that come from the avant-garde” –Justin Morrow.

This is a three-month full-time course, taught over 11 weeks. The course is designed for students with some previous experience in visual arts, film or media who are passionate about their vision, who are self-motivated, with an artistic mind, strong communication skills and who enjoy new challenges. You will explore alternatives to traditional narrative forms.

Strengthen your artistic output and your creative horizons, gain a collaborative network and explore the migration of experimental techniques into commercial forms.
