POCKET FILM WORKSHOPS

In an increasingly tech and media-driven world each of us carries a smartphone in our pocket. KinoClan is launching a new program of hands-on pocket film workshops encouraging women to tell their own stories. Our workshops engage the participants in a community-based creative process dedicated to providing them with basic cinematic tools that can transform the smartphone into a creative tool.

A POCKET is an inner, intimate space one carries on her body. A POCKET is a womb, a habitat, an incubator for infant POCKET animals. A POCKET is a separate, defined territory, a group of people who have something in common. In your POCKET are notes, money, keys, things that must not be lost.

POCKET FILM WORKSHOP ARAD: IMPRESSIONS

"Today was the last session of an inspirational pocket film workshop facilitated by Dana Goldberg. What a privilege it was for me to participate! I learned a lot about myself, as well as about accessible and intuitive photography. I met tremendous and exciting women whose openness made me lower my defenses and get out of my comfort zone."

Lynn Weizmann

"I came to the workshop out of curiosity and because I love photography. Every session was a unique experience, as well as meeting Dana, a professional filmmaker and a wonderful person. My project combines landscape painting with a poem about a clay hill. I chose the theme because of my love for this place."

Leah Fleischer

"Recently, I have been rediscovering Arad after moving to a house on the edge of the desert, and also thanks to small initiatives, like the one that brought Dana Goldberg to the artist residency program. During her stay, an amazing group of women, most of us from Arad, met every week to create pocket films. And so, beyond the exciting encounter with wonderful women and an inspirational film director, I deepened the connection to the city."
