25th - 27th January, Strasbourg (France)
Between January 25-27, 2013 NISI MASA is organizing GENERATOR - Youth Audiovisual Forum in Strasbourg. We are looking for 120 participants aged 18 – 35 who will not only be debating the future of audiovisual culture in Europe along with experts and policy makers, but will also take part in a number of daily workshops. In three days NISI MASA will lead you through a journey of different activities: from a Kino Cabaret, a scriptwriting marathon, Nisimazine workshop to other trainings, seminars and discussion panels on transmedia, youth and audiovisual European funding, alternative ways of cultural funding, to evening screenings.
Expect a NISI MASA festival!
Expect Kino Kabaret, where 40 adrenaline-driven film-makers, will be on a movie making frenzy. On the final evening of the forum your films will be screened and frugal and fun filmmaking will truly make a splash on European audiovisual culture. What is Kino Kabaret?
Expect a scriptwriting marathon where participants will be guided in bringing their ideas closer to the screen by learning about cinematographic story telling through an intense submersion into the world of inspiration, confrontation and going crazy. Battling with a promising idea, the NISI MASA trainers will guide you and help you develop it. Come to Strasbourg and be a part of writing the story of GENERATOR.
To be a part of the Scriptwriting Marathon, click here to apply! (Deadline 28thDecember)
Expect a film-criticism workshop, where an experienced team that has been involved in organizing the many Nisimazine workshops will be there to give you a crash practical course. We will be selecting 20 participants with a passion for cinema and a knack for words who will get a chance to learn more on writing about films. Previous experience in film journalism, professional or otherwise, is not required. We're hoping to help you polish your skills in order to help you make your critical voices heard.
Expect a workshop on genre films moderated by 7 Tape Productions, who will talk about the ways to start a genre based film project, concretely a horror movie – from casting to directing. Also, if you'd like to present your film and get feedback from other filmmakers, the “Feedback Me” panel is just for you.
If you are a cultural manager or work at an NGO, you can participate in culture management trainings provided by experienced trainers from our member associations.
Besides the workshops you'll have the opportunity to attend debates and panels with European audiovisual professionals, experts and policy makers. The NISI MASA member associations will screen films resulted in their previous projects and they will present what they are planning next during a project fair.
For EU citizens NISI MASA is providing free accommodation for 3 nights in CIARUS Hostel and covering 75% of travelling costs (up to 200 Euro) if you apply until December 15, 2012. Participation fee: 20 euros.

Like every year in May, kino5 is hosting the annual KinoDynamique (aka KinoKabaret)
Filmmakers from all over the world gather together in Vienna to produce short films in 3 sessions of 36 and 60 hours.
After a “production meeting” in the so-called “Kinolab” (where you can also edit, socialize, take a nap or just get inspired by so many creative people) and pitching your ideas, you start searching for fellow film aficionados among the other participants who are willing to help you with the film (camera operators, actors, sound technicians etc.)
After the teams have spent intense hours of filming and editing, including sleep deprivation and other awesome experiences, the outcome is screened in a Viennese cinema. But no time to rest, because everything starts again for a new session on the following day.
If you are eager to be part of this unique film making craziness and share 8 days of creative delight with people from all around the world!
You can already register online: www.kino5.net
Support for Eastern European Countries:
Due to our cooperation with the Austrian Foreign Ministry, we will be able to offer some funding for travel costs and accommodation to our prospective guests from Eastern Europe.

Brick5 - Fünfhauserstrasse 5, 1150 Vienna, Austria
Occupy: Mashup Workshop will take place in Maribor, Slovenia, from the 22nd to the 28th of February 2012.
The workshop is inspired by the Occupy Movement, which may not have strong leaders or revolutionary power, but does show that there is a large-scale opposition to the current economic system. The movement is mainly run and manned by young people, who see the world we live in as far from perfect. Young filmmakers should have a peek inside. What are the dreams and aspirations of the protesters and what is stopping them achieving them?

We asked young Europeans to submit their short works about multilingualism to win a place aboard the Cine-Boat, an itinerant filmmaking event travelling across the beautiful archipelago of Turku, Finland.
Our 18 winners attended the Cine-Boat workshop from 3rd - 17th June 2011, during which they travelled by boat, visiting the islands and shooting films about the local forms of multilingualism. The region is home to many Swedish-speaking communities, which have their own distinct cultural identity.
