Screening Literacy Seminar, Derry

We are delighted that Screening Literacy, the report on the EC research project of the same name, will be launched on 4 June at the Nerve Centre, Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland, in the presence of representatives of the European Commission MEDIA Unit, colleagues from European film organisations, and a sizeable group from Northern Ireland itself.

Derry~Londonderry was chosen because of its status as UK City of Culture this year, but also because the research reports that Northern Ireland is one of the leading film education providers in Europe. We are further delighted therefore that the event will see the first presentation of the results of the 10-year review of A Wider Literacy, Northern Ireland’s strategy for film education.

Throughout the day, delegates from across Europe will meet each other and shape plans for collaborations that might be funded through Creative Europe, which opens its funding streams in January 2014. The event will feature film critic and TV personality, Mark Cousins presenting sneak previews of his film The Story of Children in Film, showing at the Cinemobile outside the City of Culture offices; other work by young people, including from Northern Ireland, will be on display.

  1. Hi Mark, I hope it will be a good seminar and I’ll be glad to explain what the ProgramJCE Juventude-Cinema-Escola (which you linked here on a former post) was about for those that may not read portuguese so well. I also would like to talk very briefly about a brand new project called «CinePoets of the World, Unite!».

  2. Thank you Mark !

    From the European Observatory on Children’s Television (OETI), we are pleased to assist the Screeening Literacy Seminar.
    Spain is a country with many initiatives in the field of film education. But most come from private and NGO initiatives. Nationally, there is no formal plan for film or media literacy education in schools and beyond.
    We are particularly interested in the experiences of film education being carried out in Europe and in establishing partnerships between our countries, to achieve, together, educate European citizens with visual criteria.

    OETI broadcasts and drives, for 17 years, education initiatives in media and film. An example, this year, is the XVII International Audiovisual Festival of Barcelona, ​​the XVII World Forum on Children’s Television and the XIII Observatory´s Sessions, all taking place in Barcelona in November … and this year these activities could include the presentation of films, initiatives and projects in the Screeening Literacy Seminar, why not? …Talk in Derry!
