From next Monday 21st November to Saturday 26th, LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Gijón, will host Workshops… on film, an activity organised in collaboration with Gijón International Film Festival, whose official opening takes place tomorrow, Friday 18th. Some 600 primary and secondary school children from educational centres in Asturias will participate in the workshops which will be held by plat0 at LABoral as part of the activities for filMO. This pocket-sized festival organized by the Art Centre celebrates its third edition, which carries the title: Remake/Remodel.

filMO is a pocket-sized film festival made with mobile devices, such as telephones or low resolution cameras, originally born within the LABmóvil project by LABoral included in the Avanza Plan, which is sponsored by the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Commerce of the Spanish government.

The Workshops… on film are coordinated by Espacio de Creación y Didáctica (espaciodecreacion@gmail.com) with the goal of creating a link between young people and the seventh art, building on the educational and formative potential of films included in the Enfants Terribles cycle of the Film Festival and other classics. Its main purpose is to foster the development of creative skills, visual inventiveness and the creation of new images and stories.

This activity, which will be 55 minutes in length for each group and scheduled to extend from 10 am to 6 pm throughout the week, aims to encourage audiovisual creation among the very young based on the use of homemade technology, boosting innovation, creativity and research. The school children go from being mere spectators to experiencing audiovisual action from within, developing the construction of their stories and characters which promotes a better understanding of the creative act.

During the workshop a blog -Talleresdecine.blogspot.com- will be created which will give visibility to the work and opinions of the children and young people, as well as publish the finished works, the reviews, and it will also include the educational material for use in classrooms.
