We all know how important it is to master the way we work, collaborate and manage the people we work with. That's why, on this fourth day of FEST, we pay special attention to the strategies that we can employ when it comes to making the most out of a team.
From the technical perspective of Clifford de Spencer on how to train your voice and accent, to the key essentials of how a director can make the most out of his actors with Dominic Murphy, until the tips you may want to write down about actor's casting by Nancy Bishop, FEST Training Ground has prepared a full "people day" for you.
On our PRO Director's Hub activities, we will be discussing the importance of the relationship between the director and his assistant, the challenges of international co-production and the new Portuguese directing generation that seems to be taking the world by storm.
On the film program be sure to do your math and choose between the Agência da Curta Metragem Showcase, curated by director Gonçalo Almeida, the American Film Showcase set up by the Baia Beach or Antoine Russbach look into the morally corrupt universe of business, of Those Who Work.
