‘LensesXCultures (Lenses Cross Cultures)’ is an online digital creative documentary film lab and an avenue for cultural exchange that aims to:
- enhance the skills of participants in creative documentary.
- produce competitive documentary projects showcasing the unique narratives through knowledge exchange.
- link filmmakers and projects to possible co-producers and funders.
The lab offers a safe space for artists, lecturers and resource speakers to encourage creativity and a two-way learning process. It is a six-week intensive online mentoring of participants from documentary mentors based in the UK and Philippines, focusing on technical skills in creative documentary filmmaking. Participants are expected to produce a documentary proposal and video trailer at the end of the lab.
