Moving Cinema

Moving Cinema is a film education project implemented by Meno Avilys (Vilnius) together with film organisations „A Bao A Qu“ (Barcelona) and „Os Filhos de Lumière“ (Lisboa).
The main objectives of Moving Cinema are to cultivate openess of young people and their attentivenes to the surrounding world, to introduce students to filmmaking and film evaluation processes as a way to express oneself and relate to the world, as well as foster young audience‘s appreciation for the European cinema.
Moving Cinema creates a space where young people, professional filmmakers, teachers, school librarians and film educators meet and learn from each other. These encounters take place in various settings throughout Lithuania: schools, children‘s rehabilitation centers and cinemas. There young people take part in a wide array of activities. Students get introduced to filmmaking and create their works in workshops led by professional filmmakers, carry out their own research of archival audiovisual footage and later on use this material to create their own films, watch films at schools and in cinemas, discuss what have seen and gain practice in film programming. While teachers and school librarians are offered possibilities to deepen their knowledge about the use of film in school curriculum.
In July 2015 Meno Avilys, A Bao A Qu and Os Filhos de Lumière will share their experience in a web portal publishing methodologies, proposals for teachers and film educators, cases of best practice and students‘ creative work.

Os Filhos de Lumière is Lisbon based organisation founded by filmmakers and film lovers fifteen years ago. Os Filhos de Lumière introduce students to film as a form of artistic expression. The founders of the organisation believe that the best way to get to know cinema is to experiment, and watching films is important not only because students get familiar with film heritage and contemporary cinema, but also because it helps young people to open up and develop a more attentive attitude to the world, other people and oneself. Os Filhos de Lumière organise film workshops, discussions, seminars for teachers and run a film club.
