Cineclub IndieLisboa: New proposals, new audiences

Cineclube IndieLisboa continues it’s mission of educating new audiences, by having screening sessions throughout the academic year aimed at students in secondary and higher education. Last month, the Cineclube happened in secondary schools, film schools, schools of actors and colleges, in several sessions that featured debates led by the directors or the technical and artistic teams of the films.

The dialogues created continue to prove to be a bridge between audiences and authors, which emphasizes the importance and artistic, social and philosophical relevance of the works presented, an essential tool for the creation of a space for learning and growth. António Borges Correia, director of Os Olhos de André, was present at the Vergílio Ferreira Secondary School and emphasized the benefits of the space for reflection created and the generation to which he dedicates himself:

“The IndieLisboa Cineclube provides a space for reflection for a cinema that needs to be preserved and for a generation thirsting for free, subjective and non-massified concepts.”

The space for learning and growth is also due to teachers and institutions that collaborate with the cinema club, allowing the development of the potential of cinema as an educational tool, as pointed out by Helder Castro, teacher at the Artistic School António Arroio:

“The partnership between Cineclube IndieLisboa and Escola Artística António Arroio has allowed the enrichment of the students’ learning and transversal skills development. For the bulk of the school community, it is a moment of reflection and debate, on different themes, contents exposed through of cinema and this is only possible due to the diversity and quality of the proposed films. “
