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

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