William Brown has given a workshop on ‘guerrilla’ filmmaking at the Fest Film Festival 2016 in Espinho, Portugal.
The workshop, which took place on 22 June, was keenly attended by some 50 filmmakers from different parts of the world.
William discussed his unorthodox approach to filmmaking, before talking the audience through the ways in which limitations and perceived ‘imperfections’ can in fact be the most vital and important aspects of filmmaking and the films that result.
William is also on the Jury at Fest for Documentary and Experimental Shorts.
In 2013, Fest screened Common Ground, which is described in the 2016 catalogue for Fest as a film that ’caused quite a sensation.’
William is also curating a screening of films by students at the University of Roehampton in Fest, which takes place at the Filmmakers’ Corner in the Centro Multimeios in Espinho on 24 June at 8pm. All are welcome!
