Verbal language and cinema language are both strong communication tools between people of the same or a different culture. In this program, we want to support learning about each other through getting in touch with different Eastern European languages. We learn about languages through the medium of cinema, telling stories of different cultures, exciting backgrounds, trying to notice the distinctive sounds of a certain language, melody and linguistic belonging.

Five shorts with different languages

During this special event, we present five different short films spoken in one of the languages from Eastern or South Eastern EU countries. The young audience, youth from of the schools that we collaborate with, will select the language that is spoken in each of the films (multiple choice).


After the screening, one of the festival’s special guests – professor and linguist Radovan Lucic (from the Universiteit van Amsterdam, Faculteit der Geesteswetenschappen, section Slavische talen en culturen) – will review each film and each spoken language and will give the students basic knowledge about the languages.
