ESCAC (Escola Superior de cinema i audiovisuals de Catalunya) and the Junta de Andalucía through the Seville European Film Festival and the Huelva Ibero-American Film Festival have reached an agreement to offer the CINE BASE programme in different Andalusian centres.
After last year’s experience with the Malaga Film Festival, where 600 secondary school students attended the audiovisual narrative workshops given by the ESCAC’s CINE BASE programme, this year the initiative will be extended to Seville and Huelva.
Coinciding with the Seville European Film Festival, the Junta de Andalucía and the ESCAC will hold Audiovisual Narrative Workshops, so that more than 500 secondary school students and teachers from Andalusia can participate in the CINE BASE programme. In this way, 15 schools in the province of Seville will offer their ESO students audiovisual narrative workshops taught by ESCAC teachers. Workshops will also be held for teachers from 25 different secondary schools in Andalusia.
In addition, within the framework of the 45th edition of the Huelva Ibero-American Film Festival, more than 150 students from secondary schools in the province of Huelva will also be able to enjoy these workshops.
During the last school year 2018-2019, an agreement between the ESCAC and the Junta de Andalucía has already allowed more than 600 ESO students in the 8 Andalusian provinces to take part in different CINE BASE workshops, and 20 students were offered scholarships to take the “Summer School” summer course at the ESCAC facilities, one of the country’s leading audiovisual centres. And during the Malaga Festival 2019, teachers from 25 schools in the province of Malaga were able to develop an introductory workshop on Audiovisual Narrative, as well as participate in the summer courses for teachers, held in Malaga and Huelva.
CINE BASE is a programme that aims to implement Audiovisual Narrative as a basic, indispensable and commonly used skill in Secondary Education for all students in our country.
