Next Steps in Film Education

22. December 2020
Online regional seminar of film education in South Eastern Europe, 26 and 27 January 2021.

The seminar, which is part of the EU project Film Education: from Framework to Impact, was initially planned to take place in April 2020 in the physical realm of the Kinodvor cinema in Ljubljana, Slovenia, but it will now take place in the digital world of on-line platforms.

Nevertheless, the main objective of the seminar has not changed. We want to gather film education practitioners, cinema managers, policy makers, and film agencies in the region, and present and discuss different approaches towards:

  • finding (new) ways of providing quality film education for young audiences and making it widely accessible (again),
  • designing ambitious film education programmes based on experiences from various countries in the region;
  • building sustainable strategies for film education that enable a long-term impact.

The first day will be conceived as a regional meet-up dedicated to learning and sharing experiences between various stakeholders in the region. Presentations of different regional case studies will be followed by group discussions on lessons that we have learned in the past and throughout this challenging year.

The second day will focus on building sustainable strategies on various levels: local, regional and (inter)national. A presentation of different case studies will be followed by a practical workshop on how to design a film education development strategy.

Full details will be announced on Monday, 11 January on the website. On that day, you will also be able to register as a participant. The event is free to attend, but the number of participants will be limited.

The seminar is part of Film Education: from Framework to Impact, an EU project co-ordinated by British Film Institute, Danish Film Institute, Vision Kino and Cinémathèque Française.

The seminar is organised by Slovenian Film Centre and Kinodvor.
