Panel Discussion: Cross-Culturalism in Future Constellations.
This panel discussion will sum up the workshop series by aiming at the future. What is installed for filmmaking when money and filmmakers flow more easily over cultural borders? Are there lessons to be learnt from past flows, be it monetary, human or cinematic products? And where is film studies heading in all this? These questions can hardly be resolved at one session at the festival, but the discussion can be opened. The session will also provide the festival audience with the chance to participate more actively in formation and articulation of cross-cultural cinema. The panel will be moderated by Lars Kristensen.
