Panel: Cinema in the classroom

05 October
Sala Galmozzi

A panel discussion on the use of audio-visuals in schools

In the continuous and indistinct flow of audio-visual products that pervade any type of platform, it is necessary to offer students tools for focus and analysis, so as to promote their critical and conscious approach to the audio-visual products. And what more suitable context to reach this goal than the scholastic one, where cinema and film can become a real subject of study, integrating and enhancing the curricular activities with a different point of view and new tools?

In order to arrive at this, the involvement and training of the teaching staff is fundamental, making them aware of the enormous potential of the cinematographic medium within the school context and, consequently, allowing them to reach full autonomy in view of an informed selection of titles.

Therefore, Bergamo Film Meeting intends to promote a moment of analysis on the use of audio-visual supports in the school environment, an opportunity for discussion and high education that is structured through the interventions of three instructors, Prof. Emanuela Mancino, Prof. Paolo Fossati and Prof. Andrea Chimento.

Curated and promoted by Bergamo Film Meeting, with the support of the Cariplo Foundation and the Lombardy Region School Bureau.
The Municipality of Bergamo supports the activities of Bergamo Film Meeting Onlus.
