Caterina d’Amico – Open Lecture: Mentor – A Servant Of Two Masters
Caterina will share her 30-year experience in mentoring writers and directors, considering two different points of view: Her role of an educator as Head of Studies at the Italian National Film School when she saw her duty not only in helping students to become filmmakers, but also helping them grow in a much broader sense. And, her position as CEO of a major production company with the goal to incite writers and directors to make the best and most successful movie. The function was the same with all its similarities and differences – but the aim was different. Still, both approaches show the same starting point: A deep respect for the courage, engagement and generosity of anybody who takes on the challenge of making a film.

Caterina’s lecture will be followed by a networking reception for participants and local film professionals hosted by Creative Europe Desk Poland – MEDIA.

Monday, 3 June 2019, lecture 18:00 – 19:30, networking reception 19:30 – 20:30
Venue: Wajda School and Studio, ul. Chełmska 21, bud. 24, 00-724 Warsaw
