Hình từ phim 'Kiếp hoa' (1953), đạo diễn Trần Lang.  

Date: 16–18 January 2019 
Venue: The Centre for Assistance and Development of Movie Talents
51–53 Tran Hung Dao, Hanoi 

The workshops are aimed at Vietnam-based practitioners who seek to further their understanding of and explore possibilities around film archives and archival film materials, via both creative and management pathways. 

During the three days of workshops, topics covered will range from the making of found footage work via a community-based approach, platforms and models for community engagement, building and running film archives, access and distribution channels, film restoration, amongst others.

Sessions will be led by curators, archivists and film-makers from Vietnam and the UK, who have also provided valuable input towards the programme’s design. There will also be peer sessions, where participants can present and receive feedback on their ideas, plus ample time and space for brainstorming and getting hands-on.

By bringing together fellow-spirited individuals from a wide spectrum of backgrounds in one lab-like environment, we seek to catalyse new ways of thinking about and approaching Vietnam’s film heritage. Projects born out of this melting pot of inspiration might also be considered for financial support through our FAMLAB Fund initiative.
