Koulukino (School Cinema Association)

Koulukino (School Cinema Association) has a simple and clear principle: as many pupils as possible should see a film during the school day, in a real cinema, and have the opportunity to discuss what they saw afterwards.

A film is a brilliant pedagogical tool. It provides various topics for discussion, introduces foreign cultures, offers the watcher powerful experiences and the chance to identify with the characters, and enhances one’s understanding of oneself and the surrounding world. All this while enjoying the film! The important thing is to share the film experience. Teachers become media educators by encouraging discussion and sharing their own insights and feelings about the film.
