Curious Films' Peter Grasse to Lead Panel at Ciclope Festival
Curious EP Peter Grasse is leading a panel of film experts at the prestigious CICLOPE International Festival of Craft next week at the iconic Babylon theatre in Berlin.
Grasse will be joined on stage by three global creative talents: Sarah Barclay (JWT, New York), Finch’s Michael Hilliard and Tony Petersen of TP Film (Germany). Their session takes place on Thursday 6th November at 12:35pm.
Together, they’ll discuss 'Technology’s Toll: the Future of Film Craft in a Post-Digital Age', examining whether advertising’s obsession with new technology has been detrimental to the art of film craft.
“How we choose to employ new technology in our crafting of commercial ideas is a timely topic for us all. High-tech solutions can either further or foul the overall strength of an idea, and, sometimes, even become the idea itself. It's a pertinent subject promising to inspire a lively conversation,” says Grasse.
Grasse was part of last year’s CICLOPE Award Jury held at the Communist Party Theatre in East Berlin: “Honestly one of the best award show experiences of my career. CICLOPE is a very special event that attracts passionate filmmakers celebrating their collective dedication to craft.”
This year’s illustrious jury panel includes directors Roman Coppola, Ringan Ledwidge, Georges Bermann (Founder, Partizan), Carlos Bayala (Global CD, Mother London), Andy Gulliman (Worldwide Film & Content Director, Saatchi & Saatchi) as well as a significant contingent of jurors from Australia & New Zealand.
The CICLOPE Festival is the only international event fully dedicated to the “craft” in moving image. Unlike advertising festivals, CICLOPE Festival focuses on the art of execution, and believes a good execution is as important as a good idea.Curious Film Australia & New Zealand won Production Company of the Year for the Asia Pacific Region at last year’s Festival.
The Festival takes place on 6th – 7th November, followed by the CICLOPE Awards at Soho House, where the East German Politbüro famously used to meet.
