The 1st Moro.Film Documentary Filmmaking Workshop

Moro.Film’s Documentary Workshop is a special hands-on intensive course designed for people who wish to study the art and craft of documentary filmmaking in an intense schedule.

For those with little or no filmmaking experience, this Workshop offers strong foundation skills through carefully crafted modules aimed at focused learning, hands-on production, and the opportunity to make a fully-realized documentary which could be exhibited at film festivals.

Workshop participants are expected to learn story development, scriptwriting, directing, lighting, editing, sound recording, producing, and marketing.

The Workshop is structured in a way that participants will be able to produce their own 10-minute documentary towards the end course. To achieve this end, only 25 participants will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis.
