5th Amorgos Film Academy
October 30th to November 4th, 2022

We are excited to introduce our 5th Film Academy, which will take place conjunctively with the 13th International Amorgos Film Festival and is aimed at students and filmmakers from around the world! The participants will have the opportunity to participate in 5-day intensive workshops, which will cover the basic spectrum of filmmaking, from the conception of an idea to the logistics of production and distribution.

– Learn the skills you need to tell stories through film.
– Meet like-minded people, collaborate on projects or simply share ideas and experiences.

The filmmaking classes will be run by a pool of international creative experts with fresh and innovative ideas and years of experience in the film and audiovisual industries. Following the Film Academy sessions, participants will have the opportunity to attend the International Amorgos Film Festival, participating in all screenings, presentations, speeches, as well as recreational activities, and tours around the island of Amorgos. The short films created by the participants during the Film Academy sessions will com-pete at the Festival for a first, second, and third prize.
