Indiewire and Lincoln Center to Send “College-Age Film Critics” to Locarno ⇒

{% blockquote Eric Kohn Indiwire %} 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. {% endblockquote %}

Sounds like an amazing opportunity.

If you’re the right age and even remotely interested in writing about film, I suggest you apply.
