More than 400 pupils from 9 European countries are to take part this autumn in the European Commission's pilot project "Media Diaries", in close cooperation with the European Parliament, the LUX Prize and the Cinémathèque Network. The first film to be screened will be the 2012 LUX Prize Winner Io sono Li by Andrea Segre.

 

This first edition takes place thanks to the enthusiasm of the Media Diaries partners and the commitment of teachers and pupils from the 20 European schools involved.

 

Starting on September 23rd, the participating pupils from Austria, Finland, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Norway, Poland, Spain and the UK will keep track of their media-usage by filling in an online diary. They will also be invited to a screening of Io sono Li, followed by a discussion and some useful inputs on the film. 

 

Io sono Li already traveled all over Europe during the 1st edition of the LUX FILM DAYS – together with two other contenting films for the LUX Prize 2012's Official Competition, Tabu by Miguel Gomes and Just the Wind by Bence Flieagauf. These 3 films have been subtitled in 23 languages and screened in the 27 European countries during the LUX FILM DAYS.

 

Media Diaries is a great opportunity to learn more about the use of media and the cultural preferences of other young people from a similar age group in different locations. Results from the project will be evaluated and published towards the end of the year.
