The experienced workshop leader, filmmaker and writer, Ed Webb-Ingall will hold a three-day morning seminar at Arctic Moving Image & Film Festival. The seminar will respond to and actively engage with the 'moving image' programme of the festival. It will be structured around three, two and a half-hour long sessions every morning from Friday 28 October to Sunday 30 October (9.30am-12.00pm) at Harstad Scandic Hotel, where the group will be joined by artists involved in the festival. The members of the group will be invited to actively participate in the sessions, and reflect upon their own work if applicable. Seminar participants will also attend the festivals screenings free of charge, and draw upon and interrogate their responses to these – extending from themes, issues, curatorial premises and the festival’s structure itself to individual works as they relate to a developing, ongoing conversation around contemporary moving image practices.

The seminar is for artists, filmmakers, curators, writers, researchers, students and others engaged with film and moving image within their own practice. Also people who have no professional link to film and moving image, but who are interested in learning more about the field, are invited. Participants will be expected to attend every session and to fully contribute in determining the programme through a combination of open, critical response and self-reflection.

Tickets: NOK 50,- (approx 5 Euros - so almost free!) Your place on the seminar includes a free festival pass. Limited places: 20. We will email you with more information before the seminar starts.


Place: The seminar will take place at the festival hotel: Scandic Hotel Harstad, in the centre of Harstad, one minute walk from the cinema.
