Explaining why you would like to join the FEFF Campus (max 1200 characters)
This projects stems from a need to strengthen the link between the Festival, and therefore Asian cinema, and the new generation of film lovers.
FEFF Campus 2017 has the privilege to be supported by important European and Asian associations and organizations such as Europa Cinemas
, the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents’ Club
, the Udine Chamber of Commerce
, Asia Times
and the Danieli Academy (‘100 Reporter’ project)
Ten journalism students under 26, five from Europe and five from Asia, are given the opportunity to learn how a Festival works, how to write about film, how to interview guests, pick up techniques on how to be successful in the media world of today, experiencing being a part of a writing and editorial team that explores not only traditional media but contemporary social media.
The participants are an active part of a programme that includes seminars, interviews and workshops
that centre around the art of writing and cinema, and will be followed by a group of professionals led by veteran journalist Mathew Scott
We consider the young participants the ambassadors of the Far East film Festival and of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, and believe that maintaining strong ties between Asia, Europe and young talent is essential for the future of the international film industry.
The candidates selected for the first two editions of the Campus come from China, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Italy, UK, France, Germany, Spain and Serbia
. They subsequently found employment in the field, working for newspapers and magazines such as Variety, Financial Times, Time Magazine and la Gazzetta dello Sport.
The first FEFF Campus received extensive coverage in the local and national media, while Campus interns were encouraged to submit articles and coverage across all forms of media. Coverage of FEFF and the Campus was thereby extended through international platforms including Indiewire
in the United States, Eastern Kicks
in the United Kingdom and Cinema Today
in Japan as well as via platforms such as China’s dominant social media outlet Weibo
