Jan - May, 2022
Online and BAL
We are announcing the second edition of our BAL Film School – a five-month course in experimental analogue filmmaking. This time the film school will be open for both international and local participants providing weekly online meetings with filmmakers all around the world.
During the first edition of 2020, the program focused on the production of new experimental films – 15 students made their first works which were showcased at Process festival 2021, and are now being shown in other experimental film festivals.
For this edition, the course will be mainly focused on online meetings with international filmmakers, however, there will also be two practical workshops hosted at BAL. The online meetings will happen weekly via Zoom, allowing participants to join from any location and engage with filmmakers as well as fellow students. There will also be some homework given to the students and links to watch films provided by the guests.
In addition to the online program, there will be two practical workshops with skilled international filmmakers teaching more advanced techniques on analog film practice. Each of the workshops will take place during two weekends at Baltic Analog Lab in Riga.
