Results from 2017 Film Education scheme published

Details of the MEDIA sub-programme’s 2017 Film Education call have now been published, with seven partnership projects sharing grants of €1 million.

From the projects chosen, one is led by a UK organisation and two others have a UK partner.  

Four new projects have been proposed for funding, with two being submitted by new applicants (Via University College in Denmark and AGIS Nazionale in Italy) and two coming from previously supported organisations (British Film Institute in the UK and Cineteca di Bologna in Italy). The BFI’s entry focuses on migrants, exploring and sharing how film education might support this group to better understand both their new communities and neighbours, and the wider traditions, cultures and values that we call ‘European’.

Of the two other projects with UK partners, the first, Les petites leçons de cinéma II, uses a series of short films for a younger audiences to focus on the approaches taken when creating auteur cinema. The Centre of Moving Image is one of seven partners working on this project. The second, Wrap! focuses on building a catalogue of European films for children and is accompanied by educational materials aiming to develop a new generation of film literate audiences. Scottish Film have partnered on this project.

The seven supported projects are:

  • Cine-versity (Led by Via University College)
  • Film Literacy InCubator Klubs (Led by Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna)
  • CinEd, European Cinema Education for Youth - Step 3 (Led by Institut Francais Epic)
  • Teaching European History through Cinema (Led by Associazione Generale Italiana Dello Spettacolo)
  • Wrap! 2017-2018 (Led by Cinekid Amsterdam)
