The current series boom with all its facets promises budding filmmakers a great deal of artistic freedom. But how are film schools responding to the continuing trend toward serial narratives? How are students being prepared for this? Does the curriculum offer anything specific? FILMSCHOOLFEST MUNICH joined up with the SERIENCAMP FESTIVAL to talk about this with four students who will be presenting their latest short films at the student film festival and who are already working on their own ideas for series.

The panelists:

Faye Formisano, student at Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains, France
Tammes Bernstein, student at the National Film and Television School, United Kingdom
Pratik Thakare, student at the Satyajit Ray Film & Television Institute, India
Gregor Valentovič, student at the Academy of Performing Arts, Slovakia

Moderator: Julia Weigl

The talk was held in English.
