Acció Cinema: Morals, Intimacy, Safety and Respect

Professional Activities


Roundtable, Debate and Screening

This roundtable and debate will explore the issue of creating safe spaces when making a film and ensuring no harm comes to anyone involved in the filmmaking process. We shall also discuss how to forge ties between filmmakers and NGOs, collectives, associations and institutions at all stages of development in a film project, as well as ensuring respect is first and foremost when shooting scenes of an intimate nature.

We shall also try to answers questions such as how to approach conflictive stories that deal with vulnerable people, where to draw boundaries when it comes to our characters’ intimacy and how best to tackle the complex range of people’s different experiences and sensibilities.
