Kinedok in Schools

The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.

KineDok in Schools

We develop educational programs for schools online and offline and inspire young adults to create film clubs at schools as an extracurricular activity. By presenting contemporary driving topics and carefully selecting the films, we want to demonstrate a plurality of opinions and contribute to developing a culture of society so that students are not subject to prejudice, propaganda, and conspiracies.

Promoting critical thinking

Promoting critical thinking

With the expertise of all of our project partners, we offer students to discuss topics that are lacking from the curriculum such as diversity, gender balance, and representativeness. Thus, students will develop critical thinking and they can better understand the process of developing documentary films.
