Arthouses extended all over Europe in the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s ; they now account for 4 to 5.000 among the 25.000 cinema screens on the continent. Their position is very different depending on the european regions: organized networks in Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Switzerland… and mostly isolated cinemas elsewhere. Still, there is in all countries a need for preparing the next generation of art cinemas directors, on markets getting tougher everyday.
The ambition of the “Art Cinema = Action + Management” training is to hand-on on to this new generation the specific know-how (methods, tools, ideas, contacts) for programming, animating and managing an art cinema.
The training consists in a 9-day residential seminar, including theoretical lectures on the market background (economics, law, policies, technology), case studies / master classes, workshops and screenings. The lectures are translated in 4 languages (English, French, German, Italian), the case studies are held in language groups (English, French, German, Italian) and the workshops in English. All trainees will receive an accreditation to the Mostra del Cinema and the short film festival Circuito Off.
