PLANET G(REECE): Documentary workshops for teenagers – Part A

Do you think filmmaking is exclusively reserved for Hollywood big-shots? Or do you think documentary is just boring old TV shows?

Planet G(reece), the latest educational program designed by Exile Room targeting teenagers, is here to change your mind, proving that documentary is the ideal way to tell your story with whatever means you have at your disposal. At the same time, it will introduce participants to a vast array of exciting professions that are worth getting to know!

Planet G(reece) is a series of workshops with documentary at their core, targeting teenagers between 13 and 19 years old, both Greeks and immigrants, with the intention of encouraging intercultural collaboration and introducing them to a brand new world that could forever change their answer to the agonizing question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. Each workshop cycle will accept up to 25 participants and will focus on a different field, producing a different short documentary at the end. After the workshops have been completed, all films will be screened in a closing festival.

If you’re a teenager, a parent or an organization that works with teenagers, please check out the workshops below. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or registrations at 2103223395-6 (12-5pm) or

Planet G(reece): Part A [workshops 1, 2 and additional digital workshop “Sunset Quarantine”] has been completed. For more info on Planet G(reece): Part B [workshops 3-7], please click HERE.

Planet G(reece) #1: Doc & Cameras


What is the best way to shoot reality? With an i-phone, a photo camera, a handycam or does it take professional equipment? The answer is, all of the above! In this workshop, participants will shoot the same subject in four different ways, as they explore the places and faces in the streets of Monastiraki.

Planet G(reece) #2: Doc & Photography


Have you ever heard anyone say that “a picture is worth a thousand words”? In this workshop, we will learn how to tell stories with pictures. True stories, like the ones that take place right outside our door, in our neighborhood, our city, our planet. We’ll go in search of the truth and we’ll document our findings in pictures, instead of words, just like a regular photojournalist!
