Photo Marathon and Reykjavik International Film Festival
Description: This is the ninth year that SEEDS organizes series of International Photo marathons! Every two weeks throughout the year volunteers from all over the world come to Iceland for an intensive Photo marathon project. SEEDS coordinators work with the participants to develop their unique photographic voice through workshops and feedback sessions on technical settings, compositional considerations as well as developing conceptual frameworks which progress the participants individual style.
Type of Work: When the workshop ends, we gather as a group to select some of our best pictures from the trip and prepare those images for an informal group exhibition locally. While learning more about photography the participants explore Icelandic culture by taking part in it, capturing it and also by working for the City of Reykjavik. One of our objectives is to deliver messages and draw the attention to the local population through pictures and photos made during the camp.
Study Theme: RIFF is a film festival that takes place annually in late September. This year it takes place between 29th September - 9th October. Dramas and non-fiction films by independent film makers are shown from over 40 countries with emphasis upon new filmmakers. Concerts and photography exhibitions amongst other events are organized in conjunction with the film festival bringing the art forms together. More information at http://riff.is/en/
Please note that SEEDS does not provide the festival pass but volunteers can attend many of the off-venue events and concerts, which are open and for free.
Accommodation: SEEDS participants will stay in a house in Reykjavík. The facilities are basic with a shower, washing machine, kitchen and everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. We will sleep in shared rooms in a sleeping bag accommodation. Please bring your own sleeping bag.
Language: English will be the language in the camp; basic conversational skills are needed
