From a youth perspective social inclusion is the process of individual’s self-realisation within a society, acceptance and recognition of one’s potential by social institutions, integration in the web of social relations in a community. In order to develop and express the full potential of their talents the young people need to acquire different sets of skills and have access to adequate sources of specialized information. The efforts are focused on the young people pursuing to develop their artistic talents and most specifically to learn how to express through the audio-visual medium and the cinema language.
Cinema is one of the most team-based professions of all that requires a vast set of personal, communicational, creative and organisational skills from all who practice it and because of its characteristics, it is an amazing tool to approach young people and strengthen the chances to help their inclusion in society as full right adults. This gives the young people a chance to learn the most important competences about all the aspects and professions of filmmaking and further apply them in their life.
The general objective of the project is to foster youth creativity in the field of cinema and video making thus enhancing the development of social skills and competences affected by the isolation during the pandemic times and identifying talents and stimulating their advance to creative domains in cinema and video production.
The specific objectives are:
– To create training content adapted to low-educated young people on how to improve their communication and personal expression skills using attractive, digital and creative tools such as the fundamentals of the filmmaking.
– To give disadvantaged young people access to specialised cinema education and broaden their opportunities for professional development
– To give the participants real chance to practice their talents and self-expression by creating short films, based on specific topic and their own video presentations.
