Hesse School Cinema Weeks

During the annual nationwide SchulKinoWochen, the movie theater becomes a classroom! Schools are offered a varied film program, numerous special events with film guests, workshops for more intensive classroom work and teacher training. The aim is to promote the teaching of film as a fundamental cultural technique in the classroom. The project uses the cinema as a place to experience. Students are encouraged to engage productively with the specifics of the medium and to learn how to use it critically and competently. Free educational material accompanying the films ideally complements the viewing experience.

SchulKinoWochen is a nationwide project of VISION KINO in cooperation with numerous partners and with the participation of the ministries of education and cultural affairs of the German states and the film industry.

The DFF organizes the SchulKinoWochen Hessen in cooperation with the Film- und Kinobüro Hessen. This recognized educational program of the State of Hesse is supported by the Hessian Media Authority (LPR Hessen), the Hessian Media Initiative Schule@Zukunft and the Federal Agency for Civic Education. Also involved are the Medienzentren Hessen and the Offener Kanal of LPR Hessen. The project is carried out in cooperation with the Hesse Ministry of Higher Education, Research and the Arts and is supported by HessenFilm und Medien and the Hesse Ministry of Culture.
