“What is Real?” Programme - Fronteira Festival

Aug 19, 2015

What is Real? That is the question that this Fronteira Festival Programme poses and it has everything to do with transposing limits. Be they geographical, social or aesthetic, all of them have their own notion and delineation of what is real, unreal, and surreal.

In a partnership with the Cinéma du Réel, Fronteira Festival, taking place in Goiânia, Brazil (August 20 - 29 2015), will screen films that exploit and digress about different concepts of reality by creating bridges between the past, present and future:

- The Old Jewish Cemetery, Sergei Loznitsa, Russie, 2014, 20'
- A Festa e os cães, Leonardo Mouramateus, Brésil, 2015, 25'
- Territory, Eleanor Mortimer, Royaume Uni, 2015, 17'
- Une partie de nous s'est endormie, Marie Moreau, France, 2015, 46'

Curated by Toni D’Angela and Maria Bonsanti

FRED at School conference

Jul 01, 2015

FRED Film Radio, the multi-lingual, digital film network, which broadcasts in 25 European languages, has launched an educational film initiative across Europe entitled FRED at School.

FRED AT SCHOOL is an educational audience development project supported by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme and presented by FRED Film Radio. It is a multi-language film literacy project with elements of media (radio) literacy, conceived for secondary schools and implemented by a growing number of European countries.
The objective is to raise awareness of European films and culture among young people (students aged 14 - 16).

Currently 8 countries have signed up to the programme; the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Croatia, Romania, Iceland with many more countries lined up for next year’s programme to be announced at this year’s Venice Film Festival.

It is an inclusive project with films made accessible to visually and hearing impaired audiences.

Each participating school has shown 4 films to their students, each having been shortlisted from the European Parliament’s LUX Prize competition. The films have been selected as age appropriate and with subject matter relating to pertinent issues of European citizenship and correlating to the educational curriculum.
The selected films are:
- Illegal (Belgium) directed by Olivier Masset-Depasse
- Akadimia Platinos (Greece) directed by Filippos Tsitos
- Eat Sleep Die (Sweden) directed by Gabriela Pichler
- Shun Li and the Poet (Italy) directed by Andrea Segre

The participating students have had the opportunity to watch, and discuss each film and record their reactions and film criticism on the FRED at School radio platform, an opportunity to share their schools’ thoughts and ideas with all the other participating schools in the programme.

FRED Film Radio is organising a conference on July 2nd where the filmmakers, students, teachers, minority language representatives and members of the film industry will give a snapshot of the achievements of the first edition and the potential expansion into second edition, which will include additional languages.
Some results of a film literacy research study of the 8 participating countries will be revealed alongside the prize for best film awarded by the students themselves.

The event will be accessible for the visually and hearing impaired.

What: FRED at School Conference
Where: 309 Regent Street Cinema, London W1B 2UW
When: 11.00-13.00pm, July 2nd
