Students at the EQZE to help plan the films to be screen in Tabakalera
This month sees the start of 'Eskolatik', a cycle rooted in a process of reflection and debate regarding film programming
'Eskolatik' is a twofold initiative, since it is both a window onto the Elías Querejeta Film School (EQZE) and a programme that emerges from that very school. Once a month throughout the academic year, students at the EQZE will programme a session at the Tabakalera cinema, during which they will screen films linked to their syllabus, their work as filmmakers and their concerns and interests regarding the art of filmmaking.
