The 18th edition of the Far East Film Festival, which will be held in Udine, Italy from the 22nd to the 30th April 2016, will for the second time host a campus for young journalists that will combine education and on-site experience with cultural exchanges between writers from Asia and Europe.
Eight aspiring journalists under the age of 26 will be selected for the project. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to experience the festival first-hand while following a rich and varied training programme that will include seminars, interviews and workshops that focus on both the art of film and the art of writing. They will receive guidance from a host of experienced film industry and media professionals, led by film industry veteran Mathew Scott, while contributing to a festival newsletter and embracing all aspects of both the festival as well as the cultural and historic life of Udine and the Friuli Venezia Giulia region.
Four candidates will be selected from Europe and four from Asia. All young European and Asian journalists who have a passion for cinema and want to experience an important film festival first-hand are encouraged to apply for the selection, which will close 29th February 2016, by sending their CV to: firstname.lastname@example.org (please indicate FEFF CAMPUS 2016 as subject of the mail).
