Public online talk series between February – April 2023
“Cinema in Transition! is an online writing on cinema & curating for cinema workshop to promote emerging cultural practitioners in film industry by sharing approaches to Film Writing & Film Curatorship through online webinars and close mentorships by industry professionals. The online webinars and mentorship sessions will include different approaches to writing on cinema such as reflective essays, film analysis, research and interview-based essays that define cinema landscape, cinematic language and cinema and society. Participating curators will also get to know about artistic choices in curating films for film exhibitions, focusing on film theaters, film festivals, and film archives. As a final result, participating writers will contribute to making the latest physical copy of 3-ACT bilingual cinema magazine (Issue 6) and participating curators will curate a film program in the film screening event hosted in Yangon, Myanmar.
The online webinars will be conducted by 3-ACT Cinema Magazine Team, writer and publisher Davide Cazzaro (NANG Magazine), film programmer Julian Ross (Leiden University and MOMA Doc Fortnight) and Peter Taylor (Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival). The emerging practitioners will be closely mentored by 3-ACT editor team and curator and writer May Adadol Ingawanij (Prof of cinematic arts at University of Westminister)
This program accepts applications from Burmese and South East Asian emerging film writers and programmers/ curators. The webinars and the one-to-one close mentorship sessions will be conducted in Burmese and English. Participating writers and programmers will receive the writer’s and curator’s fees for their contribution.” 3-ACT Film Collective
