Artist Manon de Boer, curator Rita Fabiana (Gulbenkian Foundation) and programmer Nuno Lisboa (Doc’s Kingdom) are invited to participate in a case study called From scratch to film. Together, they discuss the creation of the trilogy From nothing to something to something else by Manon de Boer (produced by Auguste Orts), her practice, and her exhibition called Downtime, which opens at the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum on 30 January 2020. The discussion will be preceded by a screening of previous works by de Boer.

The On & For Case Study is a public seminar that unpacks the process of filmmaking, starting with an idea that travels from a sketch or scribble in a notepad to on the screen. The Case Study develops as a horizontal conversation in which the speakers and the audience get a chance to share concerns, strategies and knowledge of available and lacking means when it comes to making a film happen. The project coordinator, Rebecca Jane Arthur, introduces the project and speakers.
On & For Production and Distribution is initiated by Auguste Orts (BE) in collaboration with Kaunas International Film Festival (LT), LUX/LUX Scotland (UK), and Nordland Kunst -og Filmskole (NO). With the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
