High potential NGO

Sharpening the Gaze is a film criticism workshop of the Kino! Society for Expanding Film Culture, which now already traditionally also takes place at the Kino Otok – Isola Cinema international film festival and was thus also part of its 15th edition in Izola between 5 and 9 June 2019. At the Odeon Art Cinema and under the starry sky of Video on the Beach, senior high-school students and university students watched select film treats and, in a relaxed festival atmosphere in the shade on the beach, conducted in-depth discussions of what they had seen, followed the festival guests and asked them questions, wrote texts and perfected them with the help of their two mentors – Dr Maja Krajnc, film theoretician and editor-in-chief of KINO!, and film theoretician Robert Kuret – while pleasantly camping at the festival (S)camp.

 

The final texts are published on the Sharpening the Gaze blog and some of them also in KINO!
