From Mako and Pyrgos to Berlinale, with Roland Ferge!
It’s been almost ten years from the first day that we met Roland Ferge for the first time, in his hometown in Mako. A small town in the south of Hungary.
He was a fifteen year- old shy boy but with great love for cinema and cameras. He was member of Kálmán’s Czibolya team, an experienced cameraman and director, who organizes film workshops for youngsters and also Zoom to Europe Film Festival.
Along with Kalman and some others youngsters from Hungary, Roland has repeatedly visited Greece and Olympia Film Festival. By participating in Camera Zizanio with his films and also attending film workshops and many other parallel events… slowly revealing his talent.
As a natural progression of the above course of action, was his decision to follow the path of professional filmmaking. He studied at the Film Academy in Budapest (Budapesti Kommunikációs és Üzleti Főiskola) and he immediately gained recognition.
The film of his Master’s thesis “Away- El” was selected at the Competition Section of Generation K Plus of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival, winning a Special Mention.
Roland Ferge, this talented young director will be among us again, this year in Pyrgos. His awarded film in Berlinale, also participates in the Competition Section of Olympia International Film Festival (29 november-6 december 2014). But that’s just not it.
We’ll have the chance to attend his master class, in which he’ll describe this amazing course from the film workshops in Mako and Pyrgos to Berlinale. Not only a film lesson, but also a life lesson and creation.
Don’t miss this special event!
That’s Olympia International Film Festival, a youngster’s Festival, and a Festival that doesn’t resemble any other.
