The Craft of Film

Horse Money Craft Film

Have you ever wondered why a film looks, sounds, makes you feel the way it does? 

We’re highlighting ten cinematic crafts that are key to a film’s success – from directing to acting to cinematography – with a week of outstanding European films, and extended ScreenTalks and masterclasses, to shine a light on the extraordinary skills and teamwork needed to bring a motion picture to the screen.

During these events, film experts talk about their craft, giving us a deeper understanding into how their particular skill goes into making the finished film and what effect this has on us as the audience.

Among those taking part is award-winning Romanian actor Anamaria Marinca (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days), who joins us for a ScreenTalk, while the acclaimed German cinematographer Fred Kelemen runs a masterclass, alongside a ScreenTalk following Béla Tarr’s film The Turin Horse.

Wed 22- Tue 28 February 2017 at the Barbican. Full programme here

You can now listen to all the podcasts from this extraordinary series on the Barbican website to get inspired by some of Europe’s leading talents in cinema.

In collaboration with, and organised by Goethe-Institut London, EUNIC London and the Barbican. In association with the London Film School
