Film education is an opportunity for a different way of teaching. We will present examples of good practices in conducting film education in other countries and focus on the ones that take place in schools and cinemas and involve the cooperation between teachers and filmmakers. We will learn about the various ways of leading workshops and conducting film discussions. Part of the conference will also be devoted to reflection on the possible impact of film education programmes and their evaluation. The conference is aimed at professionals working at kindergartens and primary and secondary schools and the interested experts in Slovenia and abroad.
Partners: Kinodvor, Slovenian Cinematheque (the Understanding Film project) and Slovenian Art Cinema Association (the Primary School of Film project).
