CINEMAMBIENTE Lab 2015 - observers are welcome!



CINEMAMBIENTE LAB (9-11 October 2015, Turin) is a workshop for European filmmakers and producers with a project for a GREEN documentary. The lab is organized by CinemAmbiente Film Festival in collaboration with Documentary in Europe Association.

CINEMAMBIENTE LAB aims to provide its participants the tools to develop an idea for an environmental documentary in the best way possible, and to introduce them to the documentary production world, giving them advices and tips about regional funds, European tenders, festivals, alternative distrubution channels and more.
Thanks to the participation of Italian and international directors and producers, who will share with the participants their successfull experiences, the workshop is a unique moment of professional growht, focused on the participants' projects and on their training for the production phase.

Massimo Arvat (producer) and the directors Alessandro Bernard and Paolo Ceretto (2014 CINEMAMBIENTE LAB participants) will present a case study about WASTE MANDALA documentary, broadcasted by  Rai3 and special event at CinemAmbiente Festival 2015.

Jerry Rothwell, director of the multi-awarded documentary HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD, will give a masterclass about archive footage, and will share with the participants the experience of making a movie about one of the most popular environmental organizations (Greenpeace).

Fredrik Gertten (BIKES VS CARS, BANANAS) will explore the critical issues connected to the production of an investigative documentary against big multinational corporations, one of the favourite topics of environmental cinema.

Valentin Thurn, director who already joined several CinemAmbiente Festival editions (this year in Turin as a member of the jury) and European expert about food waste, will give a masterclass about how to develop integrated documentaries and communication campaigns, in order to strongly impact on reality.

Compared to its first edition, CINEMAMBIENTE LAB 2015 turns from a national into an international workshop: 30 projects from all Europe applied for the selections (Italy, Spain, Denmark, Portugal, Germany, Hungary, Greece). Also, all participants are documentary professionals, some of them already joined CinemAmbiente Festival and other Green Festival Network festivals before, others worked with international distributors and important NGOs.

The high quality of the selected projects and the increasing interest for the environmental issues clearly shows how crucial it is to keep on realizing training meetings on a European level about green production.
