Empowering Women for Cinema Workshop

Empowering Women for Cinema Workshop

Two-day workshop for Women Filmmakers 

Delegates at the film festival got an opportunity to interact with film personalities from across the nation, at a workshop conducted as part of the 22 nd edition of the International Film Festival of Kerala, on Tuesday. The workshop organized at the Hotel Appolo Dimora here witnessed discussions on a slew of topics, ranging from screenplay writing to funding initiatives for film making.

“It’s good that women of cinema these days are speaking up on things, unlike what had been seen in the olden days, said ArunaRaje. “There is a kind of intolerance prevailing in our society. Nobody wants to hear or listen to things what others say,” she added.

Leading film maker Urmi Javekar led a class on Scripting-Packaging and Pitching. Pointing out that film making is after all a business, she said, “You take money and you are supposed to payback. You should start making films keeping this in mind,” she said. Judy Gladstone, Executive Director of the National Board of the Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC), and Apoorva Agarwal, Business head, Wishberry, led a session on ‘Funds for Scripting’.

The first day of the two-day workshop concluded with a session on “Funding Initiatives and the Digital Space,” by Sanjay Ram, Film Critic, followed by an open forum discussion. The second day of the workshop will have sessions handled by prominent film personalities including Geethu Mohandas, Anup Singh, Vidhu Vincent, Amit Masurkar, Alessandre Speciale, Cary Sawhney, Rima Das, and Daria Gai.
