Project title
FilmNet - South Baltic Film and Culture Network
Project description
Despite the efforts made, there is still a need to increase the sustainability of cross-border cooperation initiatives in the South Baltic Sea. Few local entities participate in the cross-border projects and initiatives to improve the quality of services being offered – this often happens due to the lack of common ground of action, a common denominator that could unite different entities. For movie and culture entities such a common denominator is film and film art, especially, that within recent years film has become the most common and most universal means of communication. With the implementation of the FilmNet project, we want to develop cross-border cooperation by creating an international network focusing organizations of non-profit cinemas, especially non-multiplex cinemas, self-government cultural institutions, non-governmental organizations dealing with film education and the promotion of cinematography, but also institutions and organizations that are active in the field of cultural activities in South Baltic. The aim of the project is to strengthen the capacity of cross-border film and film art organizations to build cross-border co-operation through the creation of a network of collaborating institutions, international knowledge transfer, skills and experience exchange, and upgrading competence of partner institutions' workers and strengthening of Baltic Identity. The recipients of the project are partner institutions from Poland, Germany, Lithuania and Sweden and local and regional stakeholders to whom we intend to reach within the frame of the project. As a result, the potential of partner institutions for international cooperation will be strengthened. The result of the project will be an increase in the number of cooperating local actors in the South Baltic region. Popularization of results is intended to encourage new commers to join the network in the future and support its potential and experience.
