European Ambassadors of Film Heritage - Part 2

Available language: en it


Age: 14-18
Sessions: 7
Session's duration: 3h


This activity has been realized as a follow-up of the European Ambassadors of Film Heritage – Part 1. This time, the group was not formed by a full class from one school, but from 10 students from different schools and classes, aged 15-18. They chose on a voluntary basis to join this project and being involved like Ambassadors of Film Heritage, with the aim to spread the word about the importance of film history and language among their peers. They started to work on May, when they could meet the Il Cinema Ritrovato festival coordinator. He explained the different sections of the programme and how a festival works. The following sessions, always on afternoons, were devoted to analyze the main retrospectives included into the programme. Then the students could choose which author/period to focus on, they watched some films and visited the Library in order to deepen their knowledge about the context of production of the films and see some original promotional materials. When the festival began, they were involved in explaining the main retrospectives to the other European Ambassadors gathered in Bologna for the Festival and covered the Festival promoting the main events through their social profiles, through videos and photos. Two girls from this group were invited, thanks to ABCinema network, to Frankfurt for the Lucas Film Festival (September 2016) organized by Deutsches Film Institut.


The Framework sets out a series of outcomes to which any film literacy programme or project, be it in the formal education or informal education sector, could realistically aspire. It is not expected that any one project could deliver all of the outcomes in the Framework, but rather it is hoped that by placing the critical, creative and cultural dimensions alongside each other that it will be possible for project developers to explore issues and outcomes beyond their own current practice.
