Filming reality

A CFF laboratory

Animator: Irina Boyko, Director

Place of Implementation: Cultural Center of Chania


I look at reality.

I see her.

I create my own.

We are all different."

Otherwise, we see. Otherwise, we listen.

We have a different perception of things. And that's what's interesting.

To see life from our own angle. And show it.


The goal of a filmmaker: not only to look at reality, but to see it.


A creative journey awaits us, where we will acquire technical knowledge about a documentary film and a fiction film (camera, sound, editing), develop ideas, exchange views, get to know modern trends in cinema.


From script to implementation:


You can shoot your film by the simplest means.

You can give the basis to the essence of your story.

You can get your own original look, your own style.


-In the workshop we will analyze the visual-acoustic arts: fiction films, documentaries, reportage, the similarities and differences between them.

-What are their capabilities and what we will choose to tell our story.

- The role of cinema in our modern life, how we can communicate with our fellow human beings in the best possible way with the help of cinematic means.

- An acquaintance with the technical side of cinema (camera, shots, editing, sound, rhythm) and the appropriate choice, according to the story.

- Our story: the script.

Ways and examples.

How we make a script in the documentary and in the fiction film.


In the practical part of the workshop, the participants will be divided into groups (5-6 people) and, having a common theme, each group will create their own scenario.
