Film Literacy Seminar: Exploring Visual Culture. In cooperation with Cinekid and ECFA
The aim of the seminar is to exchange and broaden perspectives both on visual culture and the positioning of film in the cultural and educational debate. Best practices are discussed and during hands-on sessions we will zoom in on a variety of topics, such as lobbying and collaboration, to increase awareness of the importance of the visual language nowadays. It will be an inspiring day of informal sessions within an international environment, from which we will seek to learn how to put film education on the European school map.
Film offers a wealth of possibilities as a cultural subject: film as art, film as communication, film as technique and film as heritage. And like the other arts, film can move, entertain and make us think. Film is also a very popular medium for discovering and understanding the world. Understanding the visual language of film is therefore an essential skill in our society! Increasingly, more and more organisations are working together to deliver this message.
