The main objectives of the Moving Cinema project are to create strong links between young people and cinema, to give them the tools to be autonomous spectators, and ultimately, to build active and sensitive audiences able to appreciate diverse cinema. The focus is on on contemporary and classic European auteur cinema, with special attention to films and filmmakers that differ from the mainstream, and yet are able to engage young people in a deep and meaningful way.
The project aims to explore these objectives through four strands of work:
- screenings and dialogues
- young programmers
- film practices with mobile devices (linking filmmaking to film viewing)
- discovering films on VoD platforms
Resources are published on the website with the intention of being useful for any organisations, institutions and people interested in the transmission of cinema. Through its activities, Moving Cinema builds an important network of festivals, cinemas, screening spaces, schools, institutions, teachers and filmmakers that work together for film education for young people.
Moving Cinema is a project lead by A Bao A Qu and developed since 2014 with Meno Avilys (Lithuania) and Os Filhos de Lumière (Portugal). In 2015 the Centre for the Moving Image (Scotland) joined the project to work on the Young Programmers strand and La Cinémathèque Française (France) joined the project with the launch of Inside Cinema, an online space for the discovery of films through the materials of the creation processes.
