News Call for participants for GoCritic! at KVIFF is now open

Published: April 12, 2019| 10:00 AM

Second edition of GoCritic! at KVIFF will be tutored by British film critic Neil Young of The Hollywood Reporter. Deadline for application is 15 May, 2019

Following the successful 2018 edition of GoCritic! at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, at which four emerging film journalists and critics studied, watched films, conducted interviews, followed industry events, wrote reviews and published a total of 20 stories on Cineuropa, GoCritic! and KVIFF are opening a call for participants for the 2019 edition of the festival, set to take place 28 June - July 6.

Once again, GoCritic! invites emerging film journalists and critics to apply to the KVIFF workshop. Four participants will be selected and tutored by Neil Young (The Hollywood Reporter), and the workshop will be coordinated by GoCritic! Head of Studies Vladan Petkovic.

GoCritic! aims to empower aspiring journalists and critics beyond writing skills, providing them with a deep insight into the film industry and the developments in it, and thus contribute to European cinema in general. Tutors will guide the participants through the festival experience and organise guest lectures by experts from all fields of the film industry. GoCritic! will also help them in their professional orientation, in conjunction with other training programmes. The visibility of the participants' work will be high thanks to its publication on Cineuropa, and their profiles and examples of their work will be suggested to other companies that might be in need of their expertise. The best participants will get the chance to publish stories as part of Cineuropa's professional coverage, for which they will get paid.

We are opening the call for participants for GoCritic!@KVIFF, with the deadline set for midnight Central European Time on 15 May. Four selected applicants will be working intensively with Neil Young on reviews, interviews and industry stories, which will be published on Cineuropa. The festival workshop will be followed by a period of online tutoring.
