Since 2005 A Bao A Qu (Barcelona) has been carrying out "Cinema en curs", an international program of film education in primary and secondary schools, which links film viewing and filmmaking. One of the cores of Cinema en curs is the methodological reflection shared by the teachers and the film professionals who lead the workshops together. This reflection is the starting point of A Bao A Qu’s new project “Moving Cinema”, developed with Meno Avilys (Lithuania) and Os Filhos de Lumière (Portugal) with the purpose of sharing experiences and disseminating their methodologies for fostering young people’s appreciation of film as art and creation, and their role as active spectators.
