GoCritic! Articles

Welcome to the new page on Cineuropa, dedicated to emerging film journalists and critics through the training programme GoCritic! We are starting the project with a pilot edition at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.

In the right column you will find the information on the project, the list of tutors and partner festivals and organisations, and profiles of four participants selected for the KVIFF workshop.

The stories produced at the workshop will be published on Cineuropa's main page, and below is the list of all articles we ran so far.

For all queries, please contact gocritic@cineuropa.org
