Academy of Moving People & Images is pleased to invite you to its most significant event of the year. AMPI’s first public graduate screening takes place on Monday, January 20th, 2020 at Bio Rex. The event is organized with the collaboration of Amos Rex Museum and Goethe-Institut Finnland.
Academy of Moving People and Images is a platform in Helsinki for mobile people – those who have arrived in Finland for different reasons; be they immigrants, asylum seekers, students, or employees. AMPI’s aim is to design a new learning model and a sustainable pedagogical platform where people from different backgrounds are able to contribute to the film industry and initiate change.
The first year of the project was kicked off in January of 2019 with an Open Call. The selected participants started their studies with AMPI in April. In the span of the next 10 months, they went through many workshops and private mentorships in different fields of filmmaking such as scriptwriting, directing, lighting & cinematography, acting, sound recording & editing, film editing, creative producing, film & critical theory, etc. Each participant made a short film of their own and performed all the essential roles necessary to realize the other participants’ films.
This is your first chance to see an absorbing collection of short films from the 11 emerging filmmakers trained in the one-year program of the Academy of Moving People & Images before their release to the international film festival circuit.
The event is free and open to the public. RSVP here : https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScp-R1PbhSqek-EEkwKs8iK0lV5qRHmO0wD6lfpDosJNBnDhg/viewform
