Films with mobile phones in the Students and apprentices in cinema operation (Poitou-Charentes, France).
The national operation “Students and apprentices in cinema,” supported by the National Film Centre and the moving image (CNC), offers students whose classes are included the projection in the cinema partner of high school, at least of three feature films, as well as worksheets and interventions by professionals.
The Poitou-Charentes Region (France) has decided for the 2014-2015 school year that one of the three films will be replaced by a selection of short films made with mobile phones, selected from the award-winning films of Takavoir Festival. Students also benefit from a class production workshop day. It is an educational innovation, a first in France, which is bearing fruit. Over 50 classes have registered.
I wrote the educational sheets for the six selected short, that you can download. I also hosted the training for teachers, and trained facilitators involved in classes for workshops for creating movies.
