Nuovo Cinema Coraggioso

Tales of the real to understand the present

Animaphix Film Festival is a partner of the national project “Nuovo Cinema Coraggioso – racconti sul reale per capire il presente”, conceived by ZaLab and realised within the framework of the Cinema and Images for Schools Plan promoted by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Culture.

The image education project is addressed to high schools and primary schools and envisages the involvement of 13 schools in 5 Italian regions (Veneto, Emilia Romagna, Lazio, Abruzzo, Campania, Sicily) within a pathway that, through the language of cinema, stimulates the attention of young people and children on social issues linked to contemporaneity, which are often difficult to interpret. The trainers involved in the project, from January to May, will offer students and teachers a catalogue of 35 audiovisual works including short films and independent cinema. . From the catalogue, each class will choose a work to discuss in depth with the trainers with a view to choosing it for the final presentation to the public, peers and citizens.

Promoted by ZaLab in collaboration with Progettomondo, Biografilm Festival – International Celebration of Lives, CPS – Comunità Promozione e Sviluppo , La Bandita, Spasmo – Spazio Popolare Sant’Erasmo, Festival del Cinema Africano di Verona, Insensi – ARTINVITA – Festival Internazionale degli Abruzzi, Animaphix Film Festival, Cinecittà and Università degli Studi di Verona PHILM – Centro di ricerca di filosofia e cinema, in collaboration with the network of partner school institutes.
