Making Movies 3 takes place at the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) and the VCA Southbank campus. Continuing the how and why of filmmaking, from the filmmaker’s point of view, this capstone experience concludes the Making Movies breadth stream, at this iconic Melbourne event.
This semester 2 intensive takes place over a 20 day period (evenings and weekends) during the July / August MIFF Festival season. An initial seminar will discuss the role of festivals for filmmakers, and explore the MIFF programme of upcoming events. Students will attend at least 10 x MIFF screenings and 5 x industry talks*, then discuss these events in three tutorials, spread throughout the festival duration.
* Some of these events will be curated (i.e. pre-determined by the subject co-ordinator) and others will be free choice. There may be themed experiences to choose from (eg fiction, documentary, social engagement, Australian cinema, Asian cinema). Cost of attendance at the festival is the student’s responsibility. Ticket prices are available at http://miff.com.au/index.php . Most industry talks are free.
Upon completion, students will have:
4 x journal entries (250 words each) Due throughout the intensive (20 days) - 25%
2 x film reviews (500 words each) 1 x due at end of week one of the festival, and 1 x due 1 week after the festival - 25%
