"The Film Corner for all, Digital innovative environments for film and media literacy" is a follow-up project stemming from “The Film Corner. Online and offline activities for film literacy” and “The Film Corner Reloaded. A cultural approach” already promoted in the frame of the Creative Europe program 2014-2020 and is based on the design, development and test of an innovative set of interactive resources, an online interactive user-centered platform for film education aimed at fostering audience engagement.
In the previous editions of the project a set of interactive resources have already been developed: a section dedicated to a critical approach to film language and to film as an art form, a creative approach dedicated to film and to filmmaking and a section based on an interdisciplinary and cross-curricular approach to film education.
The new sections that will be developed will be strongly integrated and connected with the sections of the platform that have already been developed, and will both push towards the empowerment of the consolidated audience and the search for new audiences for EU art house films and audiovisual.
The Film Corner is an online interactive user-centered platform for film education addressed to school students aged 11-18 and their teachers and to mainstream users with the general purposes of increasing sensitivity and appreciation of film, increasing the film education average skills among EU students and fostering engagement towards film. The platform is accessible for free and is already available in IT, EN, FR, SR, SL, GE.
The Film Corner platform includes
3 sections, called “studios”
7 didactic directions
18 interactive apps
Selection of more than 150 extracts from classic and contemporary EU and non-EU films.
The platform has been developed in the frame of The Film Corner project, that has been run since 2016 by Fondazione Cineteca Italiana (Milan, Italy) in collaboration with a consortium of partners including: Jugoslovenska Kinoteka, the Serbian national film archive (Belgrade, Serbia), The University of Galway (Galway, Ireland), The University of Milano-Bicocca (Milan, Italy), Kino Otok (Ljubljana and Izola, Slovenia) and the Georgia National Film Centre (Tbilisi, Georgia). The Film Corner project is co-financed by the Creative Europe programme promoted by the European Commission.
