DRUŠTVO ZA RAZVOJ FILMSKE KULTURE
Društvo za razvoj filmske kulture od ustanovitve leta 2004 deluje predvsem na polju vzgoje in izobraževanja na področju filma.
Since its establishment in 2004, the Association for Film Culture Development works in the fields of education in film and discussing film. The first activities of the association were focused mainly on the organization of film screenings and talks (Cinema Club, Filmosophical Evenings, Fridays in the town’s cinema, etc.). In the last years, the activities started to be wider set, and evolutionary and internationally oriented.
The focus moved considerably into the field of film education for children and youth: we organized many workshops of animated film, the festival Animateka in Maribor, the programme Little Elephant that became an independent international festival ENIMATION little elephant, the international symposium on education through animated film, etc.). In 2014, an initiative of the association established the international platform ENIMATION that connects the creational, expert, and representational part of film education through animation.
However, the Association for Film Culture Development also touches upon other media. In 2013 and 2014, the association organized the project European Photo Youth, which connects and opens the possibilities for young photographers of all genres and orientations. In 2015, the association also organized the international youth exchange in the field of comics (Environment in Clouds 2015).
