Torino Film Lab workshop in Budapest – with Antonio Piazza, director of Salvo and Matthieu Darras, project manager of Torino Film Lab

The Italian film Salvo will be released in Hungary on 8th May by Cirko Film. Salvo has had wide critical acclaim worldwide – it has been selected for numerous festivals including the Critics’s Week section of the Cannes Film Festival.

One of Salvo’s directors, Antonio Piazza will come to Budapest to take part at the premiere.

On the occasion of Salvo’s premiere, Cirko Film and Daazo organise a workshop for film students in Hungary where they can find out more about the Torino Film Lab, an organisation offering filmmaking courses and workshops throughout Europe.

Salvo too was developed in the framework of the Torino Film Lab – the director, Antonio Piazza will tell participants about his and co-director Fabio Grassadonia’s experiences when developing their feature debut as well as explain the how-tos of building up a low budget production so that it becomes a festival success and a film popular with the audience.

Another speaker at the workshop will be Matthieu Darras, the project manager of Torino Film Lab. The Hungarian audience met him last month when he was the member of the Jury at Friss Hús Budapest short film festival. He will speak about the work of the Torino Film Lab and its projects and how and what with it is worth applying for its courses.

After the workshop, Salvo will be screened to the audience.

The two-hour workshop will be held at 18:30 at Cirko-Gejzír cinema (1055 Budapest, Balassi B. u. 15-17.). The organisers particularly welcome film students.
Participation in the workshop is free of charge and the presentations are held in English, but since places are limited, early registration at the email address info@daazo.com is necessary (registrations accepted until 2nd May).
