September 23-25 at Tabakalera and Sala Kutxa
The VIII International Film School Meeting will take place on Wednesday 23, Thursday 24 and Friday 25 September 2009 at the 57 San Sebastian Festival. That will be the second edition organised jointly by San Sebastian Festival and Tabakalera-International Contemporary Culture Centre of San Sebastian (further information about the first edition available here).
The International Film School Meeting proposes an exchange of audiovisual experiences and knowledge at one of the most important movie events in the world. Youngsters can show their short films, attend meetings with professionals and discover some of the latest aspects offered by audiovisual technology.
The selected short films will be screened at showings open to the general public and Festival guests attended by professionals from the audiovisual industry who can chat to the students presenting their work. Their teachers will also have the opportunity to explain the audiovisual teaching methods employed at their centres.
Each candidate school can present three short films. A total of 12 schools will be chosen to participate in the San Sebastian Festival with screening of the works chosen from the three presented for selection.
A special jury consisting of students from the participating schools and chaired by a well-known person from the film world will choose the winner of the Panavision Award, carrying a complete camera package Sony EX III for four weeks of filming or a voucher worth €10,000 for renting any kind of Panavision material for the awarded director.
This same Jury will also choose three directors who will have the opportunity to participate with their works in the next Cannes Festival Short Film Corner.
