SMALL FILM is an educative programme for youth and children from the age of 7 to 14, that aims to popularize art of film to the youngest audience. The idea of the project is to initialize creativity and curiosity, and first of all to form condition of possibility for critical approach towards audiovisual contents. Practical exercises trough which children autonomously come to conclusions are best way to imbibe and imply gained knowledge, while conceptualized and guided games transpose them from passive position to constructive thinking about film making. They are expected to start thinking about various phenomena, usually experienced without questioning, and this simplified analytical approach slowly leads to instinctive reactions on form and quality of certain material. Through interactive workshops children become authors of optic toys, original stories and short movies, and are spontaneously dragged into the world of motion pictures. Experiencing simplified processes of filmmaking in all its aspects, children are able to comprehend inner structure of film art and hopefully build positive attitude towards it.
Programme coordinator is Maša Seničić scriptwriter from Belgrade.
