Country: Italy

Partner search deadline: 23/05/2014

Project description

The objective of the project is to raise awareness about fundamental values such as freedom, democracy and respect for human rights, in order to foster citizens’ (especially youths) reflection upon causes of totalitarian regimes in Europe’s modern history (Nazism, Fascism, Stalinism) and to commemorate the victims of their crimes.

To reach these objectives the project will follow these stages:

  • Creation of an international (online) competition of short movies (5-10 minutes each) on World War I and causes of totalitarian regimes in Europe’s modern history
  • Promotion of the competition to inviting youths to join the contest
  • Online voting by citizens
  • A jury composed by one representative from each partner will chose the best team
  • The finalists will attend the International Youth Film- Festival in Bologna.

The winning short movies will be made available to all the partners so that each of them could use them in its ongoing education activities.

The role depends on the profile and capacity of the partner organization. Depending on the final selection of partners and on their profile, some partners may be chosen to be in charge of the organization of specific preparatory activities and/or dissemination events.
