Program Description

The short films, be they documentary, fiction or other, will be shot in Italy along the Via Francigena from San Gimignano to Radiocofani. The filmmakers will be hosted in these areas indicatively from 6 October to 4 November. The first phase of the residency will include the training of the filmmakers; the second phase will include the Francigena area survey and the pitching, together with tutors and producers; the third will be the shooting; the fourth the editing. Phases may be suspended to give space to project re-writings and re-organization. During these times filmmakers will be able to work from their own place of residence, supported remotely by their tutors via email, phone or skype. Shoots will take place along the aforementioned route, which the filmmakers will have to travel along by foot.
