Industry Programme of Film and Audio-visual Education

Industry at SFS 2021

Our Industry programme is dedicated to film and audiovisual education. It has been co-organized by the Summer Film School festival and the National Film Museum, NaFilM, since 2018. It provides an opportunity for all people interested in film education to meet with Czech and foreign experts and share projects, approaches and knowledge. The programme consists of panel discussions and workshops designed to practice the introduced methods and techniques.
This year’s programme will focus on sharing some examples of innovative teaching strategies. Our experts will recommend various engaging techniques of teaching film language or creative methods of combining film history with modern technologies (educational apps, virtual reality or computer games). With respect to the current international travel challenges, the global perspective will be integrated only through a discussion about international partnerships. Methods and benefits of incorporating international projects into film education will be discussed by experts from the Czech Republic and by the representatives of Czech organizations.
Our Industry programme is free of charge and is designed for teachers of primary, secondary and art schools, lecturers of extracurricular courses, cinema managers, film club members and others interested in film and audiovisual education. The fact that the programme is also accessible to festival participants allows us to test these unusual forms of workshops directly on various age groups.
Our Industry programme will be preceded by CinEd: Seminar of Film Education (Expert programme, August 8), accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education in the system of Further Development of Teachers (DVPP), that will explain how to use film in education in general.
