Our workshop is designed for elementary school students. Throughout the course of the workshop, children take a hands-on approach to learning how to make a short film. They also learn the logic of visual language. Children in Europe are known to learn this visual language at an early age. We hope the children will acquire the basic skills needed to make a short film and learn to cooperate with others in a group activity. The task is to make a 1-2 minute short film. The completed works will be screened during the festival.

DATES:August~September 2006 (to be announced)
