Private session for visual artists and students


Katrin Rothe, the German screenwriter, producer and filmmaker who stars in the #FOCO of the 8th edition of Novos Cinemas, will intensify her presence in our city through a workshop-meeting in which she will reflect on those factors that define the origin and development of their imaginative, heterodox and unique projects. Rothe will dedicate part of her speech to her latest feature films, 1917- The Real October and Johnny & Mea journey through time with John Heartfield, world premieres at the prestigious Anneçy animation festival. A good complement to the first foco dedicated to the filmmaker in the peninsular territory.

Katrin Rothe (1970, East Germany) is a writer, filmmaker, and producer based in Berlin. She studied Experimental film-making at the Udk (Berlin) and at the Central St. Martins (College of Art and Design, London). She is a freelance filmmaker and has primarily directed feature-length documentaries since 2003. Katrin Rothe Filmproduction arose from the company Karotoons, a creative start-up from 2001 that was the first to create internet animations in Germany. Within the production of unconventional animated content, styles, and formats, a special know-how has formed for producing mixtures of fiction and documentaries with a certain amount of animation. 1917 – The Real October was screened in Anneçy IAFF (France), Manchester IF (UK), FANTOSCHE IAFF (Swiss), Bucheon IAFF (Korea), CinAnima (Portugal) or FICXIXÓN (Spain), among others. Her last long feature, Johnny & Me – A Journey through Time with John Heartfield, had its world premiere in Anneçy, and screened in Animage (Brazil) and DOK Leipzig (Germany), among others.
