Cinema and school or cinema in schools?
Why so far has it not been possible to systematically and methodically introduce the teaching of the art of cinema in primary and secondary education despite the occasional remarkable and commendable efforts, and how can this situation be reversed?
How can documentary teaching in schools be organised?
The presentation of the experience and views of important instructors of audiovisual education and pedagogy will contribute to the fruitful dialogue between filmmakers and teachers, avoiding the sterile utterance of parallel and monotonous monologues for the promotion of each one's work.
Our aim is to create unified directions for the methodical and institutional integration of the art of cinema in school programs.
