Film education – a necessity in Europe?

We invite you to attend a panel discussion on film education in Europe (3 July, 3.30-5.30 pm, Industry pool, Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic)
 
An open panel on current and future Film Education approaches in Europe. Less than half of educators use audiovisual works in schools, although they acknowledge that it stimulates creativity and critical thinking. Is there a political and economic necessity for a coherent European Film Education policy? What are the challenges associated with forming the audience of tomorrow at the European level?
 
These and other topics would be discussed on 3 July by Michaela Sojdrova, Vice-Chair of the Committee on Culture and Education of the European Parliament and Julie Ward, Member of the Committee on Culture and Education, Mark Reid, British Film Institute, Claus Hjorth,  Working group on education in EFADs, Dag Asbjornsen, European Commission, Nuria Fernandez from the University of Barcelona, and representatives of Europa Cinemas and Europa Distribution. The discussion on these topics will follow the 4th of July with an open panel organised by Europa Distribution in partnership with KVIFF, the LUX Film Prize and the Creative Europe Desk Munchen. These topics would resonate in autumn discussions in the European Parliament on the revision on the Audio-visual Media Service directive, published by the European Commission last May.
