"Spot on: Europe" - Students and young filmmakers from Germany and Poland 26–28 October, Slubice

/ 4 Minuten zu lesen

Hier finden Sie den Workshop zum Thema "Spot on: Europe". Students and young filmmakers from Germany and Poland – The search for European ways of life and cultural identities in film and the media.

Starting point

As political integration in the European Union gains momentum, hopes are also rising that we will be able to develop a common European ideal - one that can provide the solid democratic foundation that binds an active and participatory European community of citizens. Without acknowledging that they are based on national models, standard arguments assume that a common European identity and a culturally networked Europe are preconditions for creating a viable European democracy.

Europe is more than the EU, and it is more than institutional and economic integration. Europe is an organic multitude of cultures, mentalities and languages, a colourful mosaic of experiences and memories, architectural styles and ways of living, both in our own countries and with those outside our national borders. Europe is not expressed as uniformity, but as exciting variety. It includes many unique and special views and ways of life that are not only less than harmonious, but at times even appear to contradict one another. Against this background, a 'European identity' is not a static, settled condition. Instead, it´s an open and dynamic process that allows Europeans to communicate with each other using the images that they possess, both of themselves and of others.

The search for a European identity continues in personal, local, regional, national and European contexts, as well as in the factors that play a role in feelings of personal identification. This debate, however, has failed to address a few key questions. What sorts of identity does Europe offer? In what guises is identity being created or aspired to in the public sphere? What underlies these ideas of identity? What are the distinguishing images and values that best describe the relationship between identity and citizenship education in a European context?

By proclaiming 2005 as the European Year of Citizenship through Education, the Council of Europe has underlined the claim of the citizens of the European Union to an active role in EU democracy, as well as their wish to share common values such as tolerance, solidarity, and the demand for equal rights and a voice in government.

The "Spot on: Europe" Workshop will pursue questions such as: what can films do to help anchor this identification process? And what films reconcile conflicting images of a European culture and a European way of life?
