After the successfully and much appreciated Master Classes 2008 and 2011 in Copenhagen and 2013 in Vienna we want to meet again – this time in Amsterdam!
We are inviting great cinematographers as guest speakers: artists, who have shown such a degree of creativity and personal expression that we simply have to meet them, have a talk, and a chance to be mutually inspired.
Our guest speakers, who have shown such a degree of creativity and personal expression that we simply have to meet them, have a talk and a chance to be mutually inspired:
Anthony Dod Mantle DFF, BSC, ASC
Elen Lotman, ESC (lecture „The Cinematographer as professional see-er“
Jeanne Lapoirie AFC
Luciano Tovoli AIC, ASC (special screening “Profession:reporter“ – also open to public)
Martin Gschlacht AAC
Phedon Papamichael ASC, GSC
(Please note that changes may occur)
The “Inspiration” Cinematographers Symposium will be structured like a dialogue between the guest speakers and the audience – with discussions, exchange of views and experience, and screening of clips from the guest’s films, giving them the opportunity to explain their artistic choices.
We are planning additionally a special screening of “Profession: Reporter” (dir. M. Antonioni) with a session with Luciano Tovoli, AIC, ASC afterwards and an inspiring lecture with Elen Lotman, ESC “Cinematographer as a professional see-er” and a panel discussion
– All based on the assumption that the cinematographic expression is the pivotal starting point.

There are lots of hotels and hostels in Amsterdam and we recommend to look for a place close to the Central Station. Then you only have to take the free shuttle ferry ‘Buiksloterweg to the EYE Film Institute.
If you need some more recommodations concerning hotels please contact Denis Mujovic
ACCESSIBILITY TO EYE:
EYE is located directly opposite Amsterdam’s Central Station. After arriving at Central Station, take the exit on the north side, from where you can see the EYE building. From there, take the free shuttle ferry ‘Buiksloterweg’ across the IJ harbour.
From Amsterdam’s Central Station, a free shuttle ferry that runs 24 hours a day will take you to the other side of the IJ harbour; take the ferry that is labelled ‘Buiksloterweg’. The ferry ride only takes 3 minutes. If you are travelling from Central Station, this ferry will be located on one of the two middle pontoons. When you get off the ferry in Amsterdam Noord, turn left immediately and then walk three minutes to EYE.
From Amsterdam Noord, bus 38 stops at the ‘Buiksloterwegveer’ stop (until 20:00 during evenings, and beginning at 11:00 on Sundays); this stop is right next to EYE. In addition, bus 105 (not on Sundays) and bus 109 (not in the evenings, and not on weekends) both stop at ‘Hagedoornplein’, which is a 12-minute walk from EYE.
TRANSPORT FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE CITY CENTER
