Are you an ambitious young filmmaker (age 18 - 25) who does not produce films professionally, nor studies full time at a film school?
Then YOU might be invited to participate in an international film workshop during a UNICA Festival. A week where young directors from around 20 countries collaborate in an international context, with experienced filmmakers (sometimes a professional) as your coach. In groups you make short films that are screened at the end of the festival week.
If the host country can get enough funding/sponsors, they can offer affordable (or free) accommodation (youth hostel) with breakfast near the event, for one young author per country, who takes part in the UNICA competition with his/her film.
How can you participate in such a YOUNG UNICA WORKSHOP?
Make sure you send in your film(s) to compete in a festival organized by your own countries National Organization for non-commercial (amateur) film! They are the ones that give out the invitations!
