Sixteen years of ‘Cinema in progress’: Exploring Cinema en curs’s holistic approaches to film education in conversation with Núria Aidelman and Laia Colell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Established in Catalonia in 2005, Cinema en curs is now one of the most significant film education projects worldwide. This article places selections from interviews conducted in early 2021 with project founders and directors Núria Aidelman and Laia Colell within a critical context drawing upon international considerations of film education, including previous explorations of Cinema en curs. Discussion is separated into two distinct yet interconnecting sections: first upon the institutional and media-ecological contexts in which Cinema en curs takes place (and the complex considerations informing the project’s shape and manner of delivery that arise from these contexts); and, second, upon the different cultural, aesthetic and political priorities that inform the project’s approach to methodology and pedagogy.
