The Department of Communication at the University of Macau will host a screening of the Video Workshop II student films on April 28th, at 6pm in the Student Activity Centre Theatre (E31). These 8 short films are produced by final year students majoring in Communication and specializing in the Creative Media stream.
Video Workshop II is a capstone course that is designed to challenge students to think critically and creatively through the hands-on experience of making their own short films. The theme for this semester is “Worlding.” Worlding is a concept that has multiple origins in post-colonial theory, feminism and speculative fiction. It involves paying attention to the interconnected places, people and material worlds around us. Whether building fantasy worlds or telling stories about everyday environments, these diverse films look to draw audiences’ attention to social issues and concerns important to this new generation of filmmakers.
