Collaboration between AFW and Palestine
Director of Aarhus Film Workshop, Morten Kaplers, just came back from one week of an idea generating and experience sharing initiative concerning a Film lab in Palestine. Filmlab is a new production place and creative habitat in Palestine for filmmakers and film enthusiasts. The people behind the new organisation wish to support the Palestinian film industry for young film talent as well as professional filmmakers in need of technical support as well as production and distribution support.
For the first time ever Filmlab hosted a film festival with local and Arab feature films, short films and a number of workshops for the film industry. Charlotte Giese from the Danish Film Institute and Morten Kaplers from Aarhus Film Workshop hosted one of these workshops.
