Learn How-to Make Movies




During this years festival there will be two workshops especially targeted against young movie-interested who want to learn how to be make (better) films.

The first workshop is WENIFF LAB which will be held over the week leading up to the festival every night from the 21st of october at VIBES culture workshop at Moa, Ålesund, and is for young people between 15-25 years of age.

The first day we will divide ourselves into groups and decide what format, subject and length the films will be, wether animation, documentary or fiction.

The workshop is free, the films will be made without a budgett and people will have to bring their own equipment. This year the workshop will be held by our own eminint festival-director and the director and script-writer Vigdis Nielsen.

There will also be time for watching films, socializing and there will be provided drinks and snacks every day.
