Community is considered the most original form of living together and forms the basis of every society. It occurs in countless forms and is defined in particular by one thing, namely a sense of belonging – to a family, a village or even to a religion, a party or a youth culture movement. Reflecting current socio-political realities and transformation processes, the hand-picked European films of the film show will offer insights into different European communities, present different models of living together and raise the question of the relevance of individual and collective cultural models for this. Partly located in a rural context, the films assembled will tell a multi-faceted story of life in today’s Europe.
On the level of mediation, the “video project” offers the participating young people the opportunity to deal artistically with questions appropriate to the theme of the event.
The project “Let’s live together! Communities and Culture on Screen” project aims to promote productive questioning, open up spaces for discourse and reception (including film discussions, panels) and provide art formats (in this case film) in order to give young people in particular the opportunity for reflection and creative outputs (in the form of their own short films or short videos).
With this project, the cultural association KINO EBENSEE in cooperation with CROSSING EUROPE Filmfestival Linz would like to promote the cultural and creative diversity of the region and open up new perspectives for a prosperous and social (co)life for young and old alike.
