In 2015 they are concentrating on the following projects:
“Film Rookies”; 40 youths go together and make 4 short films.
“MediaLab”; 2 shortfilms are to be produced by two young filmmakers in focus by the help of mentors. Two films will be made in this project,
“Filmtalents”; a big project where they organize and support workshops in filmmaking for youths, Film marathons, seminars and so on.
This year they have supported “Action filmmaking” classes, they have sent a whole mediaclass to the filmfestival, two contestants on filmcamp where they learned how to pitch their ideas. Filmkraft has handed out a grant to two film makers so that they can join the  FEST Traning Ground in Portugal and more.
“Geriljaverksted”; Filmkraft has bought film equipment for the young filmmakers to use in their projects.
“Kompetanseheving for medielærere”; Filmkraft cooperates with the University of Stavanger offering mediateachers free access to classes in mediaproduction to strengthen their teaching. Filmkraft also arranges workshops for the target group ourselves, like “From book to film” 11 March this year, where the director of a film called “Women using mens clothes” and the author of the book the film was based upon, hels a masterclass for 20 mediateachers. They are planning a workshop in September “A short introduction to Aftereffects”.
