A recent position paper by EFAD – European Film Agency Directors highlights how lifelong learning is crucial for the future of European Film and the creative industries and argues as a key priority that “High-quality film schools, training through short courses and lifelong learning are all crucial to ensuring that the European film sector is sustainable”. Following this, we consider as fundamental that FILMEU develops a lifelong programme that allows the Alliance to intervene in this domain making it even more relevant across the cultural and creative industries knowledge triangle. In order to ensure we are able to develop a programme that corresponds to actual industry needs, we have brought on board as associated partner, the Erich Pommer Institute, that has a depth of experience working in this field and that will cooperate with the Alliance in designing and implementing this offer. This activity concerns the assessment of lifelong learning needs in Europe in the field in cooperation with EPI, ELIA and CILECT and the design of the overall programme the Alliance will implement in the future.
Using the Lusofona X platform developed in Work Package 8 and Work Package 5 this activity will pilot the implementation of a maximum of eight courses in the lifelong learning programme. As with the previous activity, the pilot will be conducted in partnership with associated partners EPI, ELIA and CILECT.
