How can parents be involved in audiovisual education? Emese Erdös from The National Film Institute - Film archive and Maciej Jakubczyk from The New Horizons Association will share their best practices.

The National Film Institute – Filmarchive’s educational programme for young audiences is Klassz programme. The programme is based on the ‘Core Films’ ( project, the Filmarchive’s website on the history of film. We offer educational materials, online games for processing films and also organize interactive events on cultural festivals, film days etc.
The case study is about the main interactive project which started as a family programme but over time it has transformed to a programme where nearly all ages are involved.

One of the new sections of Kids Kino International Film Festival, whose audience has grown to over twenty Polish cities, is Kids Kino on Upbringing. This section includes films for adult audiences selected for their educational values helping to build parenting and upbringing competencies. The New Horizons Association focuses on film education at different levels through various programmes.
