Making Movies Matter

Training Course

1-11 February 2018 | NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, UK, United Kingdom

Main aim of this project is to equip youth workers with competencies necessary for using movie-making as a methodology.
The TC “Training Course - Making Movies Matter” aims to equip youth workers with competencies necessary for using movie-making as a methodology in bringing the common fundamental values of our society closer to hard to reach young people and young people not involved in civic and non-formal education. Based on our previous experiences, we believe that movies can make a difference when working with those youth, and we want to help more organizations and youth workers to be effective at it. Films are by default thought to be more appealing to young people compared to other media and organizations use them for introducing young people with ideas, concepts and values that do not appear exciting to most of them. However, youth workers often lack the skills needed to produce films that will look genuine and will attract and keep the attention of young people – especially ones that are generally not involved in non-formal education, and thus more difficult to reach. Thus, such films often reach only a limited number of young people who are already involved, and who can be also impacted using other methods.
