The main outcome of our cooperation within the Grundtvig project „Small cinema for learning community“ is longitudinal work on the „Regional Amateur’s Film Festival Exchange“ which dominates our common efforts to establish the well-functioning emerging process of international collaboration.
Based on the principles of local Film Festivals we invented entirely sofisticated and unique system of Amateur’s Film Festivals Exchange conception. The idea is focused on mental, social and proffesional influence of different regions which may extremely vary between each other. We deeply believe that the exchange of regional films as well as the exchange of their authors could positively move forward the thinking and deliberation of every participant. This influence causes changes an image of the society and in conclusion fights against xenophobia and national incomprehension.
In practice we’ll organise three „Regional Amateur’s Film Festival Exchange“ in each subsequent year. One in Liberec, second in Santiago de Compostela and third in Warsaw. Each festival will be devided into three sections /Czech, Galician, Polish/ where appropriate films will be srcreened and discussed together. Precised rules and conditions are the topics of our next meeting.
We hope that this project will be beneficial for the general public and will cause the shift of global thinking in wider context with it’s social consequencies.
