Photographers' / Film-Makers' Retreat In Goa

DraftCraft International is organising Residential Retreats in Goa for Writers, Photographers / Film-Makers and Single Women during the Goa Programme. The Residential Retreats will be conducted by experts in specific areas with carefully-curated sessions, exercise-based workshops and learning activities. And, what better place to host the retreats than Goa which offers the perfect venue, rejuvenating, inspiring and invigorating, to unwind, explore your hidden talents and get in touch with your creative side!

For photographers, both amateur and professional, Goa holds myriad opportunities. Come attend a five-day long Photographers' / Film-Makers' Retreat in Goa where you can avail first-hand training sessions and mentoring by a professional film-maker / photographer at the sessions held across Goa. What's more is that you could also partake in exciting Film-Making and Photo-Feature Projects in Goa with a team of DraftCraft International professionals. Shoots could be held in the by-lanes of Fontainhas aka Latin Quarters in Panjim; in the wildlife parks of Old Goa or on an island, far away from the bustle of urban life. The five-day retreat is guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing, conceptualise your works, break free of blocks and click your first works for publication.
