This summer, Indiewire is partnering with the Festival del Film Locarno – aka the Locarno Film Festival – along with the Swiss Association of Film Journalists and the Film Society of Lincoln Center to run a workshop for aspiring film critics.
Indiewire and Locarno will select six college-age participants to attend the two-week festival in early August, where they'll write about the program in a deadline-driven environment. With the support of Gohner Stiftung, the festival will provide housing from July 31 through August 11. Indiewire will contribute with a share of the travel expenses depending on the country of origin of the participant.
Sounds like an amazing opportunity.
If you’re the right age and even remotely interested in writing about film, I suggest you apply.
