 VIU Summer School | Migration and Gender | May 16-21, 2022 

Application deadline: June 3, 2024 


The VIU Summer School on Films in Venice and Filming Venice is an initiative of Venice International University, in partnership with its member universities Ca' Foscari, Iuav, Tel Aviv, Waseda, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, and Exeter, organized to coincide with the 81st International Venice Film Festival.


The aim is to combine film analysis, theory and practice, applying them to representations of Venice, through a multidisciplinary and multicultural approach, reflected both in the composition of the faculty and the student body. In one part of the program, students will be introduced to the history, culture and anthropology of Venice and its relation to visual media. They will be offered basic notions of film analysis and film-making theory. The other part will be devoted to film-making practice. Students will be encouraged to develop a team project on Venice, taking inspiration from selected movie scenes and locations, their toponyms and social character, adopting a "complex narrative" when writing the script: a film, which will be screened and collectively discussed and analyzed at the end of the Summer School. Deserving projects, if any, will be shown at the Ca' Foscari Short Film Festival in 2025. 


Suitable for: Graduate and undergraduate students from various disciplines: film studies, film-making, art history, visual art, history, cultural anthropology, sociology; and anyone who would like to learn the basics of film-making in various forms - fiction, docudrama, documentary, visual arts, etc.
