Project Summary

Films4Europe is an intercultural media-project with young people from the 4 twin-towns Château-Gontier, Frome, Rabka-Zdrój and Murrhardt. With this project we want to encourage an exchange between young people of the four twin towns and in addition to that, achieve the continuance and the development of our great youth ambassador network. After getting to know all the participants from each country at the twin town meeting in July in Murrhardt, a film workshop is going to take place in each town. Together we are going to work on the theme of town twinning and Europe by producing short films on our own. Show the youth ambassadors from the other countries your hometown and your way of life and learn more about the life of your friends abroad!

Project aims

Exchange

Films4Europe will connect young people in Europe and encourage a bright community of people from all over the continent. In particular films offer a chance for a lively exchange between them.

European Society

Films4Europe wants to achieve a long-term consistency of the youth ambassador network through this project and especially through the produced image-film. Thereby they become aware of their active role in the European society.

Cultural Diversity

Films4Europe contributes to the promotion of tolerance and cultural diversity. Within the video production the young people are discussing with their own and other cultures and perspectives that are shown in the videos. Thereby they become aware of their own cultural identity and try to deal with it.

Share

Films4Europe will give the young people the opportunity to share their everyday life conditions with the young people from the other twin towns. Thereby they explore the chances of social media for intercultural communication. In addition to that the entire project process will be shared on our social media plattforms with the whole world.
