Course offering: ARTISTS’ FILMS


A 2 month course to support beginning filmmakers

This course is aimed at students, recent graduates and artists in general, who coming from a visual arts background, wish to step into filmmaking, and successfully develop moving-image projects for screenings at festivals, cinemas and art spaces.

This trajectory will guide you from idea to project, teaching and helping you to create a strong project dossier in order to approach production companies, funding bodies, pitching labs, and so on. We will also be working on a personal strategy for your specific project: who to contact, where to apply, when, etc.

We will cover introductions to a broad range of topics, including an analysis of the field and professional landscape, what possibilities are out there for you, as well as writing treatments, statements, and finding the right context for your project to flourish. The workshop encompasses 4 group sessions of two hours each, as well as 2 individual sessions in which we will work on your materials, develop your ideas on paper and get them ready for the next steps towards production.


Sliding scale between 150 and 300 euros. We have developed a sliding scale with a minimum, as the fees will go entirely to cover the work material and tutoring hours, including preparation. Please see the sliding scale questions below to help you make an indication about which scale you might fall into and please include in your application what you are able to invest.


Bernardo Zanotta (1996, Brazil) is a filmmaker and visual artist based between Amsterdam and Paris. His films blend historical and fictional narratives that subvert genre and convention. His work has been exhibited internationally at art venues, cinemas, and festivals, including FID Marseille, Rotterdam, Queer Lisboa and Locarno, where he was awarded the Pardino d’Argento for his film Heart of Hunger (2018). Alongside short and mid-length projects, he is currently developing his first feature film.

Nieuwe Vide is an exhibition space and an artistic community hub that focuses on experimentation and talent development. Today we continue to build on the activist ideals and DIY-mindsets that form the basis of our institution.
We do this through our programme of exhibitions and activities that provide new (inter)national artistic talent with the opportunity to experiment and further develop their artistic practice. In addition, we maintain studio spaces for over 35 local artists. It is our mission to create a space in Haarlem where exciting new art can be developed through experimentation.
