Creative Wick, in association with FIlmsFeedYou, presents the CriaAtivo Film School | Première
CriaAtivo is Creative Wick’s sister Film School project based in Rio de Janeiro, and is aimed at provising opportunities for marginalized young people from the favelas impacted by recent mega-events (World Cup/Olympic Games). Over the last 12 months, 165 young students received intensive mentoring and training in directing, editing, screenwriting and cinematography.
This project is a Brazil-UK collaboration between Creative Wick and Brazilian NGO Instituto Pólen, funded by the British Council’s Newton Fund.
By the end of the project, six out of the fifteen films produced by the students were chosen as Best Films either by a Popular Jury and a Technical Jury (composed of 15 jurors from Brazil and UK).
A representative from each of the Best Films produced have been invited to London to screen their films at this event.
We will be screening the six Best FIlms from 8:30pm at Stour Space and your presence is invaluable. Come and share with us this special moment for these students. Entry is by foodbank donation.
