7 projects participated at the DocLab filmmaking workshop of 15th Verzió Film Festival. Zsuzsanna Gellér-Varga, Moniek Wester Keegstra and Levente Pap tutored the participants in the frame of a 4-day-long intensive course and gave guidance
and mentorship in creating a short film/documentary essay or in editing a scene or episode from an existing feature-length
project. The resulting works (or excerpts from works in progress) were screened at the festival and most of them are circulated on-line at Verzió's YouTube channel.
This year - as a novelty - we were glad to award two of the best projects as well:
- Ali Medoo and his project, Door of the East, Taboo, was found best by the tutors and received a 2 x 1-hour on-line consultation with EDN director Paul Pauwels and a 1-year free membership of the EDN organisation;
- Kata Oláh and Bori Csukás, authors of What will the title be? were awarded Observational Passes to DOK Leipzig 2019, one of the gratest forums in the documentary industry.
The winner projects continue to look for support at other forums, at their request these clips are not available online.
The workshop took place at CEU’s Mirabaud Media Lab, and was organized by Verzió IHRDFF and the CEU Visual Studies Platform.
