GRAND VOYAGE GEORGIA
Festival in Media
2016-11-23

The documentary filmmaking workshop in Georgia was part of the traditional Grand Journey organized by the HEAD – Geneva’s Film Department. This journey enables the second-year students to discover a region, a culture, a way of life of a different, foreign country in which they are expected to get lost before finding the bearings needed to devise a film. Following northern Thailand, Beirut, Bucharest and Nara, this Grand Journey took them to a village in the Georgia countryside – Kisiskhevi – and its region. It was supervised by the filmmaker Nino Kirtadze, assisted by Elene Naveriani, a graduate of the HEAD Film Department and winner of the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation’s Excellence Prize, and by Aline Suter, a pedagogical assistant in the HEAD Film Department and a filmmaker.

During Tbilisi International Film Festival seven short films from the students of Head will be shown.
