Imagining Queer Bandung: Basic Filmmaking Workshop for Queer BIPOC

Application deadline: 15th June 2021 23:00 CET
Participants announcement: end of June 2021

With Kit Hung (main mentor) and guests such as Robert Moussa, Sailesh Naidu, Lamin Leroy Gibba, Zara Zandieh, Fan Popo and Ygor Gama, and more

This workshop aims to facilitate both technical and intellectual conversations around decolonial queer filmmaking. It aims to provide basic tools for each participant to realize at least two small projects during the one-month intensive workshop. From the history of postcolonial queer cinema, decolonial aesthetics, basic storytelling to pitching, basic camera and documentary techniques to montage, the participants’ project conceptualization and production will be accompanied by the main mentor (Kit Hung). Throughout the process, participants will be inspired, provoked, and urged to reflect through sessions hosted by invited guests.

Location will be confirmed to successful applicants (held in Berlin).

Funded by Fonds Soziokultur and The European Solidarity Corps in cooperation with bi’bak and  ‘Queer’ Asia in Germany
