Film is a powerful means for learning. Film-making takes things even further. Through Hands-on Projects EUFORIA aims to develop, in teachers and students, an understanding of how meaning is shaped through stories told by film. Becoming creators of meaning, teachers and students are expected to engage in current societal problems and compel us to make a difference.
The hands-on projects attempt to expand understanding of film as an art-form delivering to participants meaningful units of film language. Digital Student Projects provide access to movie making tools and encourage use of new technologies. Dealing with themes from European reality, localized conceptions of place and identity, the projects present challenging views of national identity and European-ness.
