Open Set gives you the unique opportunity to participate in the film making process up close. A specially written script of about 4 minutes in length is interpreted, filmed, post-produced and completed by three directors and three photographers. Each team has approximately half a day for the shoot, and 1 day for post production, editing, sound production and grading. As a member of the audience you get the opportunity to watch a film production from start to finish. A moderator guides you through the shoot, and interviews the film team during the pauses. You can even ask questions yourself. The completed films are shown at the end of the festival week.
