careyes creation lab

Each spring, during the ArteCareyes Film & Arts Festival, the Careyes Foundation produces an intensive workshop on acting and film for emerging actors and filmmakers from Mexico and Latin America in collaboration with the Ingmar Bergman Chair of the UNAM, Cinema23 Iberoamerican Film Association, and the Morelia International Film Festival. The program is curated by Marina Stavenhagen

Initiated in 2015, the Careyes Creation Lab is a weeklong workshop led by a prestigious international filmmaker that explores both the theory and praxis of filmmaking. The Careyes Foundation also hosts special film screenings for the local community during ArteCareyes in collaboration with Cinépolis.
