EFC is producing films at Cinema City at Roskilde Festival
This weekend eleven former students and two EFC teachers are arriving at this year’s Cinema City at the Roskilde Festival. For eight days they are going to be producing films in cooperation with two of the other Danish film schools: The Danish Film school and Super16.
The three film schools are teamed up to create a creative environment during the festival, as part of Roskilde Cinema City. The short films will be produced under this year’s theme for the festival: "Dreams and Obstacles", where the films will be made using the footage of the festival participants’ own smartphones as well as footage shot by the former students. The films aim to include the atmosphere at the festival, thereby portraying Roskilde 2013.
"We are very pleased to be a part of Cinema City and Roskilde Festival. For us it has been inspiring to work with the other two schools, even before the festival has started and it especially strengthens the relationship further between all of the schools. By being a part of Cinema City students get the chance to meet and work with other schools and thus both make new relationships in the film industry as well as enter into new creative constellations." says principal Mette Damgaard-Sørensen at the European Film College.
In a common lounge area festival-goers will get the chance to see some of the schools' best productions and even try out stop-motion animation, live dubbing and other cinematic activities. There will also be opportunity for festival participants to witness how a film is made.
The former EFC students will also be working for the production company Nimbus Film during the festival. Nimbus has created a concept called: “Be a director for one day”. The concept is a kind of pitch battle where the winner has the opportunity to work with a film crew consisting of, among others, the students from the two schools as well as the European Film College.
Former students and others are more than welcome to visit the EFC at the Cinema City. We will be there from Sunday June 30th.
