Cinéaste One Student Film Festival
For the love of art and a hope to develop local film culture in Karachi, Cinéaste One Student film festival is launched.
Students exhibiting in the festival attended a summer filmmaking workshop at Alliance Française. The workshop covered basic film theory and encouraged students to find their inner creativity. The goal is to re-‐establish film’s relationship with art. Emphasis was given to create narrative (storyline) films through experimentation and minimum verbal exposition. Communication through movement is emphasized.
First time filmmakers take center stage with their short films. The creation and exhibition of genre bending student films within the space of four months marks a stepping-‐stone in the promotion of a progressive local film culture.
Cinéaste One is not-‐for-‐profit cultural organization. Cinéaste One aims to develop an academic system for producing and exhibiting films, helping further the potential of aspiring filmmakers and encouraging film literacy.
