THE INSTRUCTOR

I’m an independent filmmaker, film professor, and editing and postproduction expert.

Since 2005, I teach courses, workshops and seminars all over Europe, in film schools, festivals, production companies, and other institutions: DOCMA, FilmArche Berlin, ESDIP-Berlin, MIZ-Babelsberg, Master-LAV, and many more.

My teaching method is very practical, precise, and structured, and I also make sure things are exciting and fun.

I have post-produced and graded lots of film projects: La Piedra (Víctor Moreno), Freedom to Kill the Other’s Children (David Varela), Armenoscope (Silvina der Meguerditchian)…

My movies as director have been shown in more than 40 international film festivals and venues: Cineteca Matadero, MUSAC, Alcine, Pragda New York…

    1. Yes, Martin! I do this workshops nearly every month in Berlin, so there should be another one late Januray, or early February. If you wanna get notified about upcoming dates, write me to flavioggarcia@gmail.com, and I can add you to my mailing list. Thank you! In any case, read the Blog (English) here in my site.
