MASTER-CLASS BY NIKOLAJ NIKITIN
CINEMA WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH
Nikolaj Nikitin will present the SOFA – SCHOOL OF FILM AGENTS – training, which he has been running since 2013. SOFA invites young film agents for a one-week workshop to Warsaw (Poland) and Tbilisi (Georgia). The programme’s special quality lies in its unique target group: upcoming film professionals from Russia, Middle and Eastern Europe, Germany, Greece, Israel, Central Asia and the Caucasus republics. SOFA does not aim at educating film directors or producers, but supports promoters, mediators and catalysers of culture with unique film/cinema projects for the local and international audience in their country of origin – in all possible creative ways.
SOFA helps its participants to make their innovative “dream project” come true and, at the same time, it develops the regional film culture and industry.
During his presentation Nikitin will reflect on the changes that have happened within the audiovisual sector over the last couple of years, and how important the efforts and professional development of film agents are to save the world of cinema.
