19:30 to 21:00

Film directors are glorified storytellers with an expensive habit. There are many myths surrounding the idea of what it takes to do the job. We often hear stories about directors being enigmatic, all-knowing auteurs, despots or even magicians. These are often romantic ideas that applies more to the individual rather than the job. 

In this 70 minute seminar, based on 30 years of experience, Jonas Grimas will attempt to deconstruct your idea of what the director is actually there to do and, perhaps surprise you, when explaining why the most successful approach to filmmaking is never hierarchical.

Date: Monday, 2 July 2018

Time: 7:30 - 9:00 pm 

Venue: Ramee Grand Hotel, Seef District
