Bib for Kids Film Workshop


Last year, Bib for Kids Workshop was introduced for the first time. The horror film The Apparitions, created at the workshop, was included in the official program of the 51st review of Croatian children's films. "The workshop lasted 15 and a half hours – from Monday, when all the participants met each other, to Saturday, when the film premiered in Cinema Europa. The participants learned the basics of feature filmmaking, including developing a plot, writing a script, handling a camera, developing a scenario and "floor plan", shooting a film and editing it. No apparitions were harmed during the shooting", explained Jure Troje, Workshop Conductor.

The success at the 51st Review – the national elementary-school film event – is an excellent motive for its this year's edition that will take place on the two weeks preceding Bib for Kids (12-13 and 19-20 October), from 10.00 to 16.00, conducted by Jure Troje again. The film that fifteen or so participants between 9 and 14 years of age will make at the workshop will be shown as a warm-up program of a sort at one of the Bib for Kids screenings. The film will thus be immediately rated by approximately 500 young film critics that watch every screening. But this is not all: the idea is to extend the workshop program throughout the school year. Bib for Kids would thus outgrow the limits of Zagreb Film Festival.
