The Pamplona City Council tasks to school the programme for the video art exhibition
Students at the Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola Film School will put together the programme for the new video art exhibition which will be held this Christmas in the streets of Pamplona’s Historic Quarter. The Pamplona City Council has signed a collaboration agreement with the school to support the initiative, which will take place from 21 December to 1 January in various areas of the city centre.
EQZE promotes its research output
The school has incorporated four new international projects into its catalogue
New approaches to feminist cinema, the conservation of film archives and Basque cinema are added to the research projects devoted to Andrei Tarkovsky and the San Sebastian Film Festival. A collection of digital publications will take a fresh look at Basque cinema and audiovisuals. Students will actively take part in these international projects, the results of which will be made public in various formats
The fourth edition of Ikusmira Berriak has started
During the six weeks that the residencies last, the five filmmakers will undertake their projects at Tabakalera
This fourth annual edition will be the last one under Ikusmira Berriak's current structure. The next edition will be divided into two stays: one in February and one in September. The call for the fifth edition, which will be held in accordance with the new model, will close on the 31st. In October, the five selected projects will be unveiled.

The students are made up of 60% women and 40% men. 10 come from the Basque Autonomous Community, 17 from the rest of Spain and 18 from abroad (11 from Latin America). EQZE will have foreign students from Andorra, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, United States, Mexico, United Kingdom, Serbia, Thailand, Ukraine and Venezuela. The average age is 29 years old.
Ikusmira Berriak has become a dual-period residency
So that the film-makers get as much as possible out of the residency, it will be split into two periods, with one in February and one in September.
Residents will develop their projects for four weeks between February and March, during which they will attend workshops for film-makers and directors and will be advised by members of the expert committee. From March to September, the directors will continue working on their project with online tutoring from the experts, and then in September they will return to San Sebastian.
