Filmmaking for Social Change kicks off in Karachi

by Abi Weaver

The second Filmmaking for Social Change Workshop, lead by Patrick Hazard of LIDF and supported by the BHC in Pakistan kicked off today with 30 new recruits from Karachi and Lahore, excited and full of ideas.

Induction day for the workshop participants

The students spent two induction days at a beautiful farm on the outskirts of Karachi, getting to know each other, discussing ideas and of course relaxing before the hard work begins.

After this intense week-long workshop, covering the history and theory of documentary film as well technical and aesthetic considerations, the students have a month to shoot 10 documentary films in groups of 3. We will return in March for editing and post production. The films will be shown at LIDF 2010 at the British Museum as part of our Pakistan focus day and 5 lucky students will have the chance to travel to London to present and discuss their films.
