Félix Blume Masterclass



Thinking about Filmmaking through Sound

How should we go about making films by listening to what we hear? How can we create a sound-based narrative before considering the visual side?

This masterclass explores these issues by examining the creative processes behind the films Curupira, criatura del bosque and Luces del desierto.

The director will draw on his own experience and use film clips and material from sound archives and the cutting room floor to talk about the development, editing and postproduction processes for films designed around rooted in a sound-based narrative.

Félix Blume (France, 1984) is a filmmaker, sound artist and sound engineer. He works with sound as a raw material to create audio pieces, videos, actions and installations. Often following collaborative processes, he engages with communities and uses public space as a context for exploring and presenting his work. His practice involves an expanded understanding of listening as a way of stimulating awareness of the imperceptible and as an act of connecting with others.

His sound pieces have been broadcast on radio stations across the world. Los gritos de México won a Pierre Schaeffer Prize at the 2015 Phonurgia Nova Awards, where three years later Curupira, criatura del bosque won a Soundscape Award. In 2021 his film Luces del desierto won the International Short Film Prize in l’Alternativa Official and the Grand Prix Art Vidéo at Festival Côté court.
