Our Students Experience

”I was able to try a lot of different things. This sense of freedom to experiment and to create was really helpful for me. It was a great experience. A new way of doing things, especially if you are interested in the intersection between anthropology and film.”

Nnenna  Onuoha - PhD researcher in Anthropology 

“I learned a lot about filmmaking, and I had an amazing time working on the film. Great community atmosphere, with colleagues from all over the world. Such an interesting mix of people. It made the experience very, very interesting.”

Oana Țenter - Fulbright Fellow Documentary-making

“It changed me in the way I film, I edit, in the way I prepare. It helped explain things better, understanding the ideas in the film. I was able to ask questions whenever I needed to. I would definitely recommend Cineimpact.”

Ignacio Garcia Sanchez - Filmmaker, storyteller, film editor 

“The hardest part was to create the storyline. Not having a script and shooting for three full days made me feel a little bit concerned. But the Cineimpact team helped me extract the story from my footage. I learned so much in such a short time!”

Sergiu Chirău - Videographer, Storyteller

New Project Production
-On Site & On Line-

Duration: 19th - 26th of November 2023 

12 Days ( 8 Days On-Site + 4 Days On-Line )

Location: Casablanca, Morocco

The Participant learns a practical, transdisciplinary method on how to create an optimal movie/transmedia project out of a challenging topic, within a limiting amount of time, budget and context. The learning experience integrates the entire process of non-fiction and docu-fiction film making by developing a new film project from A to Z while going through the fundamentals of anthropological field work, pre-production, production and post-production phases, concluding with a brief final touch on project pitching, fine tuning and distribution.

The Cineimpact Method

The Cineimpact Method was developed since 2005 by Ionuț Pițurescu, interlacing Applied Sociology & Anthropology with Immersive Filmmaking, internationally recognized through movies such as "Quest" (Romania, 32 min), selected and awarded by "Quinzaine des Réalisateurs" at the 63rd Cannes International Film Festival.


"Quest" is a docu-fiction, medium-length movie, completed by Pițurescu from picking up the topic to the end, in a surprising time frame for a story that won one of the most sought-after prizes of the film industry. At the heart of the 2010 Selection and Prize at Cannes IFF for Quest, lies an ingenious Sensory Storytelling Method grounded on efficient Filming, Editing, and Socio-Visual Anthropology techniques, appliable in your most demanding audio-visual projects.

Bringing together his 20+ years of practical and field-work experience in over 40 countries, along various academic studies, including a Ph.D. in Sociology and Visual Anthropology, Ionut Pițurescu designed an experiential learning method developed around the most elusive parts of the filmmaking and transmedia processes: THE SENSORY STORYTELLING, THE EMPATHY FLOW and THE EMOTIONAL JOURNEY, co-created with and for the involved audiences and human contexts.


In 2015 a second selection at Cannes International Film Festival's Cinefondation Atelier had Pițurescu's docu-fiction project "Borders" (Denmark, Romania, Burma) recognized as one of the best feature-length film projects worldwide confirming the Cineimpact insightful method.
