FIRST INTERNATIONAL MASTERSHOT FILM FESTIVAL
Mastershot Film Festival is the first international festival of films made from beginning to end with a single shot - so called mastershots. The initiative was created by independent filmmakers in 2015, who, fascinated by the film's picture and frame dynamics, decided to create an original and completely approach to filmmaking in Polish cinematography.
During three pioneering years of activity, we managed to realize a series of workshops for professional filmmakers and filmmaking enthusiasts in Poznan and Warsaw. We also realized an independent Contest for the best Mastershot in 2016, the winner of which was the young Polish director Marta Prus for the film entitled "Warm cold". We have gathered a wealth of experience and gained knowledge, thanks to which subsequent editions of the festival, competition and workshops will be even more suited to the needs of Polish filmmakers.
Submissions of films to participate in this year's Contest will be accepted in October and November 2018. The final and the Closing Gala of the Festival will take place in December 2018 in Poznań. The Top 10 will be selected among all submitted films. Ten best mastershots will take part in the final competition. The best one will be selected by the Jury of the Contest. The results will be announced at the MASTERSHOT FILM FESTIVAL 2018 gala, during which the authors of the best productions will also be awarded prizes. The main prize this year is the MōVI stabilizer, which was founded by FreeFly Systems.
As very important part of the festival, we regularly organize workshops for filmmakers in selected cities to provide the participants with substantive knowledge and professional equipment.
The preliminary list of cities we are going to visit: GDANSK - WARSAW - POZNAN -CRACOW - BERLIN - PRAGUE - LOS ANGELES. As the festival develops we are going to visit more different locations. If you want us to visit your city - you can do it - please write us.
And what have we managed to achieve to date? We have already trained 1,000 people at Mastershot film production workshops, we have produced several films, some of which you can watch on our YouTube channel, we have visited various film locations in Łódź, Warsaw and Poznań, we played retro, futuro and contemporary, we were inspired by the best artists and inspired over a thousand people to the art of film! And we can do more, and we certainly will!
