Film Education Strategy and Its Implementation: Presentation of Programmes by Slovenian Art Cinema Association and Other Entities
In early December 2016, the National Film Education Programme Development Strategy was adopted in Slovenia in line with the Resolution on the 2014–2017 National Culture Programme. The objectives of the strategy, as set by the Ministry of Culture six years ago, were “to provide accessible, systematic and long-term film education as part of the school curriculum and as part of cultural institutions, considering the specifics of the film and audio-visual sector the strategy is based on”. The event will look into how and to what extent these objectives have been met as part of formal (secondary art schools) and informal forms of film education (cinema audience education). August 2021 saw the wrap-up of the Primary School of Film, Art Cinema Association’s five-year education project for primary school educators across Slovenia. In terms of the strategy, this is undoubtedly an example of good practice. The project was financed by the European Union from the European Social Fund and the Republic of Slovenia. Its final report includes project outcomes and recommendations for future development of film education.
