A documentary film workshop for teenagers from Oradea

One World Romania invites young people from Oradea between the ages of 14 and 19 to participate in the “Point & Shoot” documentary film workshop.

The Point & Shoot will last 5 days and will take place between September 28 and October 2, 2022, in Oradea, at Oradea Community Foundation, Creole Shopping Centre, 1st Floor, Komonetica, with the support of the local partners of the Oradea Community Foundation project and Oradea Direct Europe.

The workshop will be coordinated by three Romanian filmmakers with experience in cinematography: Carmen Tofini (documentary filmmaker and cinematographer), Cristina Hanio (documentary film director and producer) and Drago Hansio (film director and cinematographer). The Film Workshop for Teens provides an introduction to the basics of audiovisual language and grammar, both at a theoretical and practical level. The program designed by the three teachers draws the participants’ attention to the representation of reality through the camera and its effects.

The eight selected youth will work individually and in teams based on the topics suggested by the teachers. These practical shooting and editing exercises will be discussed and analyzed from a formal, grammatical, and ethical point of view.
