Filmhub Noord is a close collaboration between Kunst & Cultuur, Keunstwurk, Kunstkade, Forum Groningen, Film in Friesland and the International Film Festival Assen. Together, we are making every effort to ensure that film education in the north has a structural place in primary and secondary education.
Through swiping, scrolling and snapchatting, children and young people surround themselves with film all day long. It is the way they discover the world, express themselves and maintain their social contacts. At the same time, they lack the right words to properly interpret the images and give meaning to them. Together with its partners, Filmhub Noord teaches young viewers the language of film, allowing them to put themselves and the world into a broader perspective. We do this by watching, experiencing and, above all, doing.
Filmhub Noord is a close collaboration between Kunst & Cultuur, Keunstwurk, Kunstkade, Forum Groningen, Film in Friesland and theInternationaal Filmfestival Assen. Together, we are making every effort to ensure that film education in the north has a structural place in primary and secondary education. To do so, we build a network of parties with the same goal in mind, work to promote the expertise of teachers and educators, and inform and inspire, requested and unrequested. Each province also has a Living Lab: an equal and investigative collaboration between education, support institutions and film education providers. In this, we answer the question of education by doing. The end result is a number of inspiring educational programmes, transferable to other schools, provinces and providers.
What is film education?
Behind the scenes, the national network Film Education has been working hard on Dit is filmeducatie! and Doorlopende leerlijn film. These publications describe in concrete terms what we want to achieve with film education, and we introduce film education to a broad target group involved in film education: school boards thinking about including film in the curriculum, teacher trainers and teachers interested in teaching about film, developers of teaching materials and other professionals involved in film and education.
Dit is filmeducatie! describes the power and beauty of film, offers definitions of and around film education, and explains our vision and goals. Doorlopende leerlijn film offers teachers and lesson developers guidance on how to design activities and lessons around film, this publication can also orient cultural coordinators and school leaders interested in including film in the curriculum.
