Black International Cinema Berlin
The initiatives Black International Cinema Berlin (BICB), together with Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre and the Collegium - Forum & Television Program Berlin gather an international, intercultural community of persons engaged in achieving increasing understanding and cooperation between individuals and groups in support of democratic procedures and the elimination of violence, religious, ethnic and gender persecution, youth exploitation, homophobia and racial hatred through the process of art, education, culture and dialogue.

Spielfilme im Unterricht. Didaktik, Anregungen, Hinweise
Movies picture current moods, atmospheres and developments. They use different ways of showing their own view of the reality. As they are entertaining, young people like movies a lot.
This text suggests ways of working with movies in Literature, Language, Religious Education and Art-classes both in a pedagogically motivated as well as in a didactically reasonable way. The movies can both be used in terms of content or as a subject to formal analysis. If teachers manage to use that medium without destroying its aura, they can build on existing media competency and can foster new, improved abilities when it comes to handling media.
