U.S. Consulate General in Curaçao Sponsors Film Workshops

cw-iffr-curacao-international-film-festival-rotterdam-white-220WILLEMSTAD – The American Consulate will sponsor free film workshops for youth as part of the Curaçao International Film Festival Rotterdam (Curaçao IFFR).

This 7-day program will take place on Curaçao, during the week of April 1-7, 2013. It has been arranged in cooperation with organization Fundashon Bon Intenshon, the U.S. Consulate General, local schools, and non-governmental organizations.

American independent filmmakers Ben and Joshua Safdie will be leading the workshops, which will focus on movie ideas, shot lists, camera techniques, sound system optimization, and different options for editing.

The program is designed to teach aspiring filmmakers (concentrating on students ages 13-21) about the process of filmmaking and will also include preparation for next year's short-film contest. More details about individual events will be announced soon.

Raised in New York, the Safdie brothers began making movies at a young age, inspired by their film-enthusiast father. They attended Boston University, where they co-founded, with Alex Kalman, the creative collective Red Bucket Films.
