XI Film Summer School
True as Fiction: Cinema between Narration and Representations of the Real
Locarno, 2-6 August 2010
Every year the Faculty of Communication Sciences of the Università della Svizzera italiana and the Locarno International Film Festival organise a Summer School to analyse fiction and non-fiction cinema. The Summer School is part of Réseau Cinéma CH, a Swiss university consortium promoting two Master of Arts programs in Film Studies and Filmmaking.
The XI Film Summer School will explore the cross-hybridization between contemporary fiction cinema and documentaries in dialogues with scholars and filmmakers. The scholars invited are professors Raffaele De Berti from the Università degli Studi di Milano andJenaro Talens from the Université de Genève. We are also pleased to announce that the renowned Argentinian director Lisandro Alonso will be among the directors guests at this year’s Summer School.
The four modules – coordinated by dr. Nevina Satta – will consist of two workshops conducted by two renowned filmmakers, one of whom will be the famous Argentinian director Lisandro Alonso. Using analytical methods, the authors will present their own creative-production processes and the typical features of their relevant market. Laboratory work includes the viewing and the discussion of one or more films, each author’s presentation of his conception and production cycle in its main stages, and will conclude with a group discussion with the film director.
