Cinema lesson- confessions of a filmmaker

Cinema lesson’ is a special occasion for the Festival audience to meet with our guests. During those meetings the artists tell about their fascinations with art in general, about seeking inspiration, about their mentors and masters, and finally about sins they’ve committed on their artistic paths. The outcome of each meeting is an interesting portrait of the artists and a vivid discussion about values, views and the role of art in everyday life.
