Start date: Mar 1, 2015, End date: Feb 28, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

„ThinkFilM“ is a Youth Initiative’s project organized by the „NaFilM“ informal group, which was founded and continues to be formed by the students of the masters program of the Department of Film Studies on Charles University in Prague. The initiators of the project are engaged in the research of film education and public presentation of the national film heritage for the second year. The ThinkFilM project builds on a previous project called „Czech Film Museum“ and extends it to an international level with the participation of project‘s partners from Germany, Poland and Great Britain. Czech Republic is one of the few countries in the European context, whose national film heritage is not publicly accessible. The uniqueness of the project lies both in its output, which has the form of a concept of non-existent Czech Film Museum, and both in an international outreach that adds irreplaceable value to the whole conception. The aim of the project is to map the existing procedures used in the film education of the youth and in the public presentation of cinematographic heritage and then use acquired knowledge for finding innovative practices that established practice improved. A major benefit of each of the project partners will be the creation of their own filmic-education project for youth, which will correspond to the needs of the country (eg. exhibition, educational program, teaching material). These works shall be subsequently interconnect in project‘s output – in the concept of Czech Film Museum, which should manage the position of institution that will provide informal film education and public presentation of the national cultural heritage in Czech Republic. The project will participace students and academics from foreign universities. Each of the project partners will be created by three main members of the group, who will coordinate the project in each of the partner countries. During the first year of a larger research project they shall group together bigger team of students Together they will establish cooperation with relevant institutions in their own country. Partners will communicate with each other through internet channels. In the meantime the group meetings will take place within each group and at the international level as well. At the same time, the results of the project will be consulted with representatives of film institutions. We will also organize meetings with the youth, which will verify created procedures and obtain feedback from the main target group. The impact of the project is expected firstly in the field of film education of youth, in which the project will contribute to improving the quality and innovation of established practices, and secondly in the presentation of film heritage, in which we will seek to modernize the presentation and declassification of relevant cultural to the general public. In the long run, the project wants primarily establish intensive cooperation between partner universities and institutions involved. Together we will attempt to improve the quality of the film education. The impact on personal and professional development of the participants is equally important. We plan to continue in making film education more accessible to young people and we strive to make national cultural heritage publicly available at national and international level.
