LOCAL STATE HIGH SCHOOL AWARDED BY THE ITALIAN MINISTRY OF EDUCATION
EFF COURSES ON IMAGE EDUCATION ARE READY TO START
A. F. Formiggini” State High School specialising in Humanities and Scientific Studies has been awarded by the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) for its project “Il Significato Nascosto delle Immagini” that will start in a few days.
The project – developed in cooperation with Ennesimo Film Festival – has been awarded by the MIUR within the framework of the National Program for Cinema in the Schools (see section “CinemaScuola LAB”). Ennesimo Film Festival is ready to launch three new teaching modules addressed to the students of the local high school specialising in foreign languages, humanities and human sciences in their 3 rd and 4 th year. The classes will be coordinated by the teachers Diana Paltrinieri and Cristina Vandelli and will literally “project” the participants into the world of cinema.
The introductory lectures on Image Education will revolve around the theme of “reviews writing”, focusing on what takes place on a movie set before the camera actually turns on. The students will produce short video clips to promote their institute during the Orientation Days addressed to middle-school pupils and their families. The second and last part of the course will take place during the 2 nd school term and will focus on the art of subtitling and on audiovisual translation: after having learned the basics of AVT, the students will practically translate and subtitle from English into Italian some excerpts taken from the shorts screened in the past editions of the festival by using a professional subtitling software.
« We are enthusiastic about this important goal achieved together with “A. F. Formiggini State High School”. – explain Federico Ferrari and Mirco Marmiroli, the two Artistic Directors of Ennesimo Film Festival – This represents another important recognition after the launch of the project “Ennesimo Academy” that had been acknowledged as well by the MIUR as a “good teaching practice as a result of the application of the cinematographic language in the schools”. We believe that it is fundamental nowadays to provide the
students with a sort of “toolbox” with all the necessary cognitive tools that will make them able to analyze the visual contents and videos they’re surrounded by on a daily basis, thus training their critical spirit. Therefore, we would like to thank in advance all the teachers and the school leadership, as well as the students that will embark on this adventure with us to discover the multifaceted world of cinema from a technical and professional point of view.»
