Building on the first phase of European film club pilots that took place in Spain, Romania and Cyprus, this grant will see the launch of three new pilots involving 50 schools in Lithuania, 150 in Georgia and 200 in Latvia.
The project will also include a major strategic initiative to carry out a feasibility study into developing a European-wide film license for schools and a network of film clubs.
Film clubs have proved to be successful in developing film literacy as well as young people’s confidence, communication skills and motivation to learn, positively affecting critical thinking, cultural understanding, writing and general literacy.
