1st DINFAC proved itself with big potential and aim to
become one of the biggest world's film workshops. There
were 150 young participants from Korea and another 8 countries
from Europe, America and Australia. They had formed 25
teams-film crews and during the workshop made (completely
produced) 25 good quality films, 2-5 minutes long each.
DINFAC results are telling everybody of serious intentions
of organization team of DINFAC to fight for prestigious
place on the map of world's media summer workshops.
University of media language once again, as so many
times before, proved its efficiency! Engaged together
on film production young people from all over the world
showed absolute readiness for understanding. No matter
how difficult for some of them was to communicate in
English (official language of the workshop), they needed
only few hours to make atmosphere of full cooperation.
Differences in every day habitations of participants
and traditional, cultural and religious backgrounds
worked for (not against) richer media expression involved
in filmmaking in workshop. Perfect natural surrounding
where DIMA is situated and hospitality just make
fine addition to excellent conditions the College itself
And that is not all!
There were perfectly organized for us sightseeing trips
to some of numerous places of cultural - historical
heritage of Korea. As usual, we believe to know a lot
about others, but there is much left to learn. Some
of the participant was invited to spend several days
in Korean families and they got more complete experience
about this wonderful country.
I do hope that this visit is only the beginning of
great global project. I am personally wishing to organization
team and all participants to continue in such a good
manner and produce a lot of new films.
