Doha Film Institute, in collaboration with the HBKU Student Center, presents Montage, a five-day introduction to the art and craft of film editing and its crucial role in cinematic storytelling. This workshop will be led by award-winning filmmaker and editor Sabine El-Chamaa.

Participants will shoot and edit their own short films using only photographs, music, voice-over and sound effects to create compelling ‘photo-films’ that will greatly enhance their visual storytelling abilities.

‘The still pictures themselves, always transforming from one into
Another, are like a mirage. One moment they are present, then give way to another. Yet a trail remains: the trail of the story/ emotion / journey that the film evokes’. – Sabine El-Chamaa

Dates: 15 – 19 September 2013
Venue: HBKU Student Center, Education City
Times: 6:00PM – 9:00PM

Submissions close 8 September, 2013.
