Participants of our final audiovisual product of the project Filmtime Academy. The presentation took place at the Dukers kulturhus.
FilmTime Academy Project was an intense experiment where young people from three countries were putting their heart and soul into film production, exchanging experiences and perspectives on all from cooking to relation to supernatural stuff.
Check the Shortfilms bellow, where nearly 80 participants wrote, directed, produce for the first time. They all contributed on many levels to the movies, which you may find here with more detailed credits:
The Project was made possible thanks to Erasmus+ programme and Swedish National Agency of European Commission, MUCF.
Film Time Academy days are coming
Second activity within the project “Film Time Academy” will take place in Helsingborg, Sweden between 25-31 October. After first activity where 36 young people from Sweden, Italy and Turkey produced three short movies focusing on the topic of discovering/interpreting fellings and identitees, this time we will gather 12 young people from Turkey, 12 from Italy and 15 from Sweden, to discuss all the reactions that movies created, and to praise the one of the films that got the most attention. The participants will be offered a possibility to visit some regional places of interest or special theme nights, where they can preset their countries, cultures and ideas. The aim is to provide inspiration, challenge and knowledge to youngsters about shaping their expiriences into messages that could be spread to a wider audience, using audiovisuals like film as a means of communication.
The final audiovisual product of the project will be demonstrated on public in Helsingborg.
Another week full of inspiring visits, interesting discussions and last-minute improvisations… We finished Outintic study visit with a lot of memorable moments. Until next time, stay weird… Stay outintic. 🙂
It’s time for the study visit for our long term project Outintic! It will take place between 1-6 August in Hästveda, Sweden.
The project is pursuing an attempt to change the perspective, and therefore vision about possibilities and view on limitations, for young people whose learning, communicating and behavioral patterns
differ from their peers. We hope to bring youth workers (generalist) and people working especially
with young people with psychosocial and cognitive conditions(specialists) together to exchange
practices and develop an innovative holistic and cooperative approach to young people’s deviant
competence development and learning style in order to increase inclusion in their communities.
“FILMTIME ACADEMY” is a project where 36 young people from Sweden, Italy and Turkey meet in Hästveda, Sweden between 03-17 July, 2019 in order to produce their own short films focusing on the topic of discovering/interpreting feelings and identities. Mostly cinema students and multimedia production interested young people joined this project.
The organizing team aimed to provide inspiration, challenge and knowledge to youngsters about shaping their experiences into messages that could be spread to a wider audience, using audiovisuals like film as a means of communication. The participants experienced that they have more similarities than differences, in their cultural contexts and personal opinions in the process.
After 2 weeks full of discussion, struggle, sleepless nights but also a lot of fun and laughter, we ended up with 3 short films all taking place in Hästveda.
We had a lovely brunch and celebrated the official opening of the Outintic House today! We hope to meet more and more people on next ones. You can follow our Facebook page to get updates about our next events.
