Screening at Video in Progress Festival in Ljubljana

Screening at Video in Progress Festival in Ljubljana

Student production screened at Video in Progress Festival in Ljubljana. The festival selection includes short works by different generations dealing with the city and the history. The introduction comprises a number of short films produced at First Pass (Prva podaja), a 48-hour workshop that marks the beginning of the new academic year; every year the new intake of students, mixed into different inter-generational combinations, walks through the city and whilst getting acquainted also produce their first group works. This is followed by three intimate portraits of urban dwellers and then we go back to the city through the eyes and actions of a group of graduate former students who take us from Ljubljana and Gorizia to London and São Paulo, or Singapore. Last, but not least, is a documentary omnibus Ghetto, presenting the world’s oldest ghetto; a small piece of the world in close proximity – indeed it is the actual place where the term originates. Most of the films were produced by the School of Arts in the University of Nova Gorica, whilst some are a co-production with the Famul Stuart School of Applied Arts and the FamulVideoLab. The Ghetto omnibus was produced at the international workshop of documentary film in Venice, which was the last of three editions of the Hidden Live(r)s of Venice project, with participation of students from three partner universities from Austria, Croatia and Italy. Urban StoriesParticipating students: Ana Bahor (SI), Matjaž Bajc (SI), Denis Barbić (HR), Mark Bizilj (SI), Francesco Cartigheddu (IT), Jaka Čurlič (SI), Urška Djukić (SI), Alexia Eberl (GE), Renata Fugošić (HR), Sara Ghiani (IT), Dominik Grdić (HR), Ester Ivakič (SI), Klavdij Juvan (SI), Simon Klembas (SI), Gregor Kocjančič (SI), Filip Košnik (SI), Tina Krajnc (SI), Gaja L.
