Talent Campus partners with Apple

Berlin fest educational scheme lines up shorts project

BERLIN — The Berlin Intl. Film Festival’s Talent Campus is partnering for the first time with Apple Computer as the educational platform expands its focus to include the Internet as a platform for film.

Apple has signed up as the Campus’ main partner and will sponsor the Campus’ new Garage Flick project.

On each day of the Campus, participants will produce a “Garage Flick” — a digital short film — to be instan-taneously and exclusively presented on the Internet with the support of Apple.

Taking place for the first time in Berlin’s Hebbel am Ufer theater complex Feb. 10-15, the Campus will offer a “Working Campus” studio equipped with Apple hardware where participants will produce their one-day pics.

“This program combines the practical teamwork on concrete film projects with a critical exploration of new formats, narrative structures and distribution and production possibilities,” the Talent Campus said Wednes-day. “The prominent role that Apple and its products play in this environ-ment makes them a key partner in helping to put on this program.”

The Garage Flicks podcasts will be available on the Campus Web site and from the iTunes Store directly after completion. Additional podcasts created by an Apple film team will capture select Campus events and interviews with both participants and visiting experts.
