CinEd – European Education for Youth, an extended project on cinema education for European students is to be launched this year in Romania, being implemented by the NexT Cultural Society and by the Macondo Cultural Association.
The first 10 cities to benefit of the project's programs are: Bucharest, Alexandria, Buzău, Galați, Craiova, Mediaș, Târgu Mureș, Timișoara, Ploiești and Roman.
Early in April, training sessions are to be held for the teachers registered with CinEd. They will be able to set up a free account on the platform to gain access to all educational resources and to the film catalogue, so as a larger as possible number of pupils in Romania are able to develop a new perspective on viewing and understanding art features, thus becoming active viewers, with critical visions.
The film catalogue was made up following a series of meetings and working sessions to which all CinEd partners took part (France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Romania), and it includes this year 11 full-length features and 3 short features of various genre, destined for pupils of all ages, and most of them award-winners at different international festivals.
