Film Lab & Art Camp - July 8th-12th at R.E.D. - EINAWOOD
SØNDANZ FLAC is a 5 complete days mentorship film laboratory open to artists of dance, visual, writing and sound that are already working on a project or in the process of starting one.
OBJECTIVE: The aim is to originate a community to produce art, play, experiment, collaborate and celebrate together each other’s works. Germinating and testing ideas through playful collaboration/experimentation, feedback, meeting and conversation.
CULINARY EXPERIENCE AND FILM PROGRAMS: Daily community dinners that the participants will help to prepare and cook (in rotation), therefore generating also a culinary experience, accompanied by watching films programmed under RIFF, the ongoing film festival located at the same venue.
CRITERION ACTIVITIES: Daily meetings will be held to share and show the work in progress and get critique and feedback.
Sessions will also include movement, music, walks, drawings, playing and dining.
REQUIREMENTS: The participants will bring their equipment for their process: camera, editing software, and computer. Every participant is responsible for their own equipment and knowledge of the equipment and software they intend to use, as no video/editing training will be taught.
RIFF will provide projectors and canvas.

“SØNDANZ FLAC is a safe ground for experimentation, development, production and celebration. May be some cool projects will take off or may be this is a place for making mistakes and see where an idea can generate other possibilities.” Francesca N. Penzani.
FINAL SHOWING: SØNDANZ FLAC will conclude with an open showing on July 12th, followed by a tapas dinner organized by RIFF.
