On the 27th of March I will be holding a lecture/workshop on screenwriting again at the filmXperience, which is a part of the International Film Festival Breda. The filmXperience is a podium where young starting filmmakers, actors and actresses, can learn more about the filmmaking process. There are workshops on animation, film and finance, improv, acting and screenwriting (by yours truly).

On the 15th of August, I will be attending a debate with other up-and-coming filmmakers at the LiteSide Festival in Amsterdam. And I will be showing clips of my films during the debate. Program starts at 8 pm.  There’s tons of other stuff going on too, so I think I will be there throughout the day.

From the press release:

Four remarkable filmmakers will go into discussion with eachother about their personal experiences as a writer of a different ethnicity. Orhan Sahin (GANGSTER BOYS, 2010), In-Soo (CARMEN VAN HET NOORDEN, 2009, MADE IN KOREA, 2005), Baris Azman (THE MAN WHO GOT LOST, 2010) and Fedor Sendak (WOLF 2003, FOR THOSE AND OTHERS, 2009) will share their personal experiences and answer questions from the audience. The debate will be led by Sander Jansen, filmmaker and founder of the Dutch Directors Guild.

Date: 15 Augustus 2009
