Structuring a Career as a Filmmaker

Schedule: June 26th at 13H00

Location: Junta de Freguesia de Espinho

Lecturers: Jack Turits and David Tallon


Cinema, Television, Commercials, Commissioned work, Filmmakers come across the choice of directing several different formats during their career. This brings up many key questions about structuring a career in film. Some have no interest in expressing themselves through commercials or TV, others see it as a chance to show versatility in their line of work.

Where does the maker's autonomy begin and end? Which function do commissions can, should or must have? How does all of this balance with the essential factor or filmmakers having to make meets end? Are these different formats a way of different expression, or close to an obligation for a filmmaker to survive? All these questions and more will be discussed during this panel session.
