Learning Through Films
Start date: 01 Aug 2014, End date: 30 Jan 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Learning Through Film: Bringing Europeans films closer to younger audiences is a web-based interactive learning and viewing platform for children and youth presenting European films at its best. But mainly it is also a teaching tool for elementary and high school teachers/ youth professionals either tackling different themes in society (good and difficult issues) and developing discussions through audiovisual content; helping to learn new (European) languages; or studying the film & storytelling through European films.The platform provides possibilities to watch films from different countries through Europe. The access to the platform will be available only for learning purposes in “class-room” environment together with additional learning materials and tutoring by teachers. However in long-term the platform would provide working tools for children also. So in addition to regular VOD possibilities Learning Through Film provides several additional features both for teachers to use in their work and also for students for study practices.The portal is based on unique web content management and development system - BMO (Black Market Online developed by Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival originally for promoting regional film industry. Children and Youth Film Festival Just Film has been using the platform for the in-house video library, however it provides much more. BMO is used also by several events and organisations internationally: Estonian Film Institution, Nordic Council of Ministers Estonia, Helsinki Film Affairs; Moscow Film Market Red Square.
