Seminar film & architecture

Seminar Building Documentaries,12 June 2009, 10.00 – 13.00
In the framework of DOKU.ARTS the Mediafonds organizes a seminar on documentary filmmaking and architecture. Architecture is closely related to filmmaking, involving complex logistics and decisions. Cinematic space has always been a source of inspiration for architects. On the other hand, the fascination of many filmmakers with architecture makes buildings a prominent element in their storytelling. This seminar examines the changing visual and narrative strategies used by documentary makers to give buildings a central role in their films. How are documentaries about architecture constructed? How do documentary filmmakers deal with visualizing buildings and building processes? Can a building become a narrator and can architecture bethe protagonist – instead of the architect? How is the typically iconic status of architecture revealed and, more importantly, how is this dominant view questioned? Friday 12 June 2009, 10.00 – 13.00, Mediafonds, Herengracht 609, Amsterdam. The seminar is conducted in English. Free entrance, please register before June 9 via doku.arts@mediafonds.nl.
