Get Your Own Picture project unites 60 young people from Europe to run film workshops and produce films as end products.
The aim is to promote a sense of ‘Europeanness’ among young people from every strata of society and encourage them to participate in the democratic process. This is the third phase of an ongoing project. The underlying theme will be European Citizenship.
Having learned the theoretical basics of making movies, the participants will realize their own ideas and shoot short films relating to the topic “European myths”. These films will be shown at the 12th International Festival and will be also shown in other festivals all over the world.
The contact between the youth from EU shall open a wide dialog and international work connections. The participants will understand the similarities and differences among their historical roots and experience what it means to act, to work and to think inter-culturally. The common passion about the medium “film” will be very helpful in achieving these goals. Despite the different cultural contexts and different religious views, the participants will experience that there are still a lot of similarities among themselves.
