Masterclasses in visual storytelling for youth around the world.

 

THE STORYCAMP SEMINAR 2018

THURSDAY MAY 24 10AM AT LITTERATURHUSET IN FREDRIKSTAD

During the past few years, the so called parallel societies have been a recurring subject in public discourse in Scandinavia. Exactly what it is that defines a parallel society, is an ongoing discussion, but the term has been used almost exclusively in connection to immigration. Storycamp's mentor program invites the participants to freely interpret the term. Which parallel societies exist? Where can we find people who, by choice or necessity, distance themselves from the majority? At the Storycamp Seminar three internationally renowned documentary film makers will screen work related to this topic. An introduction will be given by Erik Kruse who works with youth, prevention, drugs, crime, education and preventing/countering violent extremism in Fredrikstad. The seminar is free and open for everyone. Please notify us if you're coming: post@storycamp.no.  Welcome!

NOW CLOSED FOR APPLICATIONS: MENTOR PROGRAM WITH JESSICA DIMMOCK

Storycamp and the DOK-festival are now inviting young filmmakers and photographers to apply for a 6 month mentor program. Eight lucky talents will produce a short documentary each with counseling from the internationally renowned photographer and filmmaker Jessica Dimmock (Netflix, HBO, NYTimes, VII Photo, m.fl.). The final films will be screened at the DOK-festival in Fredrikstad 2019.

The mentor program is open for young creators between the age of 18 to 23, and is organized to ensure that participation can be combined with school and studies. Participation is free of charge and includes an exclusive seminar at the DOK-festival in 2018 as well as general admission to the festival. The mentor program starts May 24th, 2018 and ends December 1st. The counseling will take place online. Send us a link to your previous work (portfolio/link to films) and an idea for a project (see theme below) OR a short motivation for participation to: post@storycamp.no. Application deadline April 15th 2018.

In the selection process we will emphasize photographical individuality and the ability to tell a story. We are not looking for photographers or filmmakers whose skills are exclusively technical. The mentor program is supported by Viken filmsenter.

 

THEME: PARALLEL SOCIETIES

The theme for this year's mentor program is parallel societies. During the past few years, the so called parallel societies have been a recurring subject in public discourse in Scandinavia. Exactly what it is that defines a parallel society, is an ongoing discussion, but the term has been used almost exclusively in connection to immigration. Storycamp's mentor program invites the participants to freely interpret the term. Which parallel societies exist? Where can we find people who, by choice or necessity, distance themselves from the majority?
