Attention, Filmmakers: Here's Your Chance to Attend Werner Herzog's Film School

In a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for prospective filmmakers, Werner Herzog will be teaching a four-day film seminar in Munich, Germany from March 18-21, 2016. This event will mark the sixth weekend-long seminar the director will be hosting in the U.S. and cities across the globe, though it will be the first class to ever take place in Munich.  So far, other seminars have been held in Los Angeles, New Jersey and London. Applicants are encouraged to apply from all around the world.
The Munich seminar will take place Friday evening through Monday evening in an intimate classroom setting within a hotel’s conference room. While there are no academic requirements, applicants must fill out a brief written application and submit a short film that they’ve directed. Some topics covered during the session will include traveling on foot, the athletic side of filmmaking, creating your own shooting permits and guerrilla filmmaking tactics.
