While participants being gone for their internships, Atelier newbie Lea is discovering the Filmakademie:
'I am Lea, the new trainee at the Filmakademie! Four weeks ago, I startet my traineeship in the department Film Production/International Producing and will be joining the Atelier team at the end of August. Apart from my diverse tasks, I am lucky to have the opportunity to attend some of the classes of the production course to become familiar with the topic. Besides the theoretical part, I’m looking especially forward to hands-on experience when taking part in an Atelier short film project this summer.
After having received my master’s degree of French-German intercultural studies in Freiburg and Lyon in autumn 2016, I was looking for a job in the cultural sector. I am particularly fortunate that that the traineeship at the Filmakademie combines my passion for the medium film as well as the possibility to work in the Franco-German cultural cooperation.
I am already looking forward to the study excursion to Berlinale in February 2018, which will surely be one of the most exciting parts during my time at the Filmakademie.
Until then, there is one place at the Filmakademie I will probably visit more often: The library! Plenty of films waiting to be discovered..."
