The MME – Movie Making Experience is a high-level training course dedicated to cinema professionals. It consists of eight full-time days in which the selected participants, grouped in teams (direction, screenplay, acting, editing), will produce a short film, starting from conception to production. The whole experience will take place as a competition, in which the didactic activities will be accompanied by a contest between the participating teams.

The short films produced will be projected and voted during the final awards night in San Servolo (Venice), and finally passed over to the MME’s Film industry partners: Coccinelle Film Placement, Giffoni Film Festival, Woman in Film, Fairplay Production, Controluce Produzione, Kahuna Film.

Theoretical and practical courses in acting, directing, screenwriting and editing include the use of professional instruments and will be conducted by the trainers of the School of Film Art Florestano Vancini and the CPA Centro Preformazione Attoriale of Ferrara, Italy. The entire course will take place in the classrooms of the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice in San Servolo island, in front of St Mark’s Square, Venice


The MME is an experience of study, work and networking with professionals in the film industry field organized to live the experience of the “set tribe”: from feeling/inspiration to image.
