EVENTS / CALL FOR ENTRIES: Children and Youth Productions at BaKaFORUM 2007

Children and Youth Productions

Children and Youth shall do it themselves: producing programmes. The didactical approach to that method mostly is: learning by doing. But it is much more than that. Turning away from that global brand of always the same puppet shows, it is recurring to their own life, to their own culture, to their own strength and power by the means of television. Light cameras (and light technical facilities over all) give children and youth a chance to produce short programmes themselves. Over all, if children and youth get the opportunity to turn their own stories into short programmes, they get a chance to develop self-consciousness and becoming aware of their natural and their social environment.

BaKaFORUM 2007 will put emphasis on that kind of production, with a large thematic approach, even if  programmes connected to the ?producing peace? core theme will be very much appreciated. And still, this session will be open to high quality productions on that focus of war and peace that are not produced by children and youth themselves.

Please register your programmes for screening in the registration area. You may want to register the same programme for screening and for the contest.

Please understand that the BaKaFORUM program committee will have to select the programmes for screening. Thus, we recommend to indicate a time code of a shortcut quote with your first submission, in case the programme may not be selected for a full-length screening. Programme registration deadline: December 1st 2006.
