Cinema Summer Camp 2023

Invitation to participate in the "Cinema Summer Camp" 2023 byChania Film Festival

"Cinema Summer Camp" is an innovative organization that combines New Technologies, Art and Culture, Nutrition and Culture of Crete, Agritourism and Soft Development. Mainly, it is a structured creative holiday experience for teenagers as well as adults.

The aim of the "Cinema Summer Camp" Program is for the participants to get to know, through a series of theoretical and experiential activities: a) the Art and Technique of Documentary, b) Basic Principles of Audiovisual and Cinematic Education, c) the Culture of Crete.

Workshops, seminars, discussions, screenings, visits, musical evenings, culinary quests and a series of other events make up a 10-day program, which offers the possibility for the group to experience unique experiences.

Furthermore, in addition to the elements of Knowledge and Learning, the Program also includes the element of Creation as the group - each time - creates its own documentary. The event is the central summer activity of the CFF and combines Education in Documentary Creation and wider Audiovisual Education with the introduction of Cretan Nutrition, Agritourism and the gentle development of our island.
