Cineimpact Film Spring Academy – offering a creativity toolbox for filmmakers

Dear Madame/ Sir,


I am writing to you regarding the spring edition of CINEIMPACT Film Academy 2020, an international program that, since 2014, empowers Art and Social Cinema, through an innovative mix of Creative Documentaries, Docu-Fiction and Visual Anthropology.  The Academy will take place between 28th of March and 06th of April 2020, in Heraklion, Crete.  

The selected participants will experience a tailored-made, hands-on program and will go through a complex method of innovative film-making guided by the tutors: Ionut Piturescu, Sorin Gociu  and Alina Matache. During the field research, development, production and post-production of the films, the participants will be inspired by master-classes held by invited experts. 

The Cineimpact Spring Academy offers the following Film Production Sections :

  1. New Project Development

· the participants experience the entire process of film making by developing a new film project from A to Z while going through the fundamentals of anthropological field work, pre-production, production and post-production phases, concluding with a brief final touch on project pitching, fine tuning and distribution

 2. Work-in-Progress Incubator

· the participants will receive advice and development mentorship on one of their work-in-progress projects, being a non-fiction or a docu-fiction project, challenged by the hardships of the pre-production, production or post-production stages, including  the optimizing of project’s pitching, fine tuning or distribution strategy

Please find full details on our site https://cineimpact.org/

CINEIMPACT Film Academy supported students and filmmakers from diverse backgrounds, cultures and countries from all around the globe such as Sweden, United States, Spain, China, Italy, England, Brazil, Germany, Greece, Ghana, Slovakia, Netherlands, Hungary, Romania, Turkey, Croatia, Hong Kong, Switzerland, etc. Cineimpact's effectiveness to inspire students was confirmed along the years through projects such, among others: "Pattern or Not”, directed by Dorottya Balczo (cinematographer) & Andra Nedelcu (visual artist) - selected and propelled to participate in one of the sections dedicated to short film (SFC) at Cannes Film Festival 2016, or "Mother and Son" (Romania, Finland, directed by Irish-Italian director David Power), one of the projects initiated in 2017 that has become a feature length film - selected in 2018 at the prestigious LisbonDocs Film Forum, one of the most important industry events organized by European Documentary Network.  

We would like to make sure that we are reaching students and professionals interested in the fields of visual anthropology, film directing, cinematography, editing, visual arts, media production. We would be grateful if it would be possible to share this opportunity through your members network.

We are hoping to develop a medium and long term relation and partnership with your institution that could take various forms: from mutual promotion of  educational and creative activities to more complex collaboration and exchanges involving our possibly shared passion for cinema and social sciences in the service of relevant research and stories of our contemporary society. We have confidence that we can find together common grounds for deeper ways to develop our partnership that could become of essential support for groundbreaking creative projects. Please let us know if you would be interested in receiving a partnership proposal from our behalf

Thank you very much for your time and looking forward to your feedback.

Please confirm the receipt of this message.

Best wishes,

Alina Matache
