Cineimpact Academy Method is a unique, transdisciplinary fusion that mutually empowers the insights of Cinematic Storytelling, Social Sciences and Personal Journey. 

Developed in 15+ years by Ionuț Pițurescu, using Applied Sociology & Anthropology in creating Immersive Filmmaking, the Cineimpact Method was 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-lenght movie written, shot and edited by Ionuț Pițurescu in twelve days, a surprisingly short time frame for a story that won one of the most sought-after prizes of the film industry. Fusing unique Filmmaking and Anthropology insights, Cineimpact method is the toolbox to reach your best creative potential.

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
