COWeb Online Platform With Active Educational Programme Under the Mentorship of Maja Krajnc

Again this year, COWeb will organise a critical writing workshop in the field of film, which will be held by Maja Krajnc. Under her mentorship, after every screening, participants will identify the possible ways of reading and writing about the featured films. The workshop, taking the form of active discussions, will be held in the café at Kinodvor. Publication activities will encompass contributions in the form of theory, reviews, reflexive impressions and interviews.
