After last year's great start, with a strong feedback coming from the territory that soon become genuine demand, Ravenna Nightmare has a keener and keener eye on educational activities with a growing project developing throughout the year as well as during the Festival days.
Nightmare School proposes viewings, occasions of analysis and formative meetings addressed to students at all levels of Comune di Ravenna including University, aiming to develop in young audiences a deeper skill in decoding audio-visual information to which they are constantly exposed.
Latest news is first edition of Summer School - realised in collaboration with Start Cinema Factory - that will be focusing on documentary cinema, coordinated by professor and screenwriter Lorenzo Hendel with a Master Class by director and documentary-maker Jerry Rothwell.
Another project in convention with University of Bologna will be taking place during the Festival, namely curricular internship in cinema and communication whose application deadline expired last July 12. Students enrolled in Conservation of Cultural Goods, Literature and Philosophy, Communication Science and Fashion Cultures and Techniques will actively participate in the Festival from September 24 to November 9 reporting it day by day through the management of a blog dedicated to the event.
Also Nightmare Junior & Kids's specific screenings, meetings and workshops have been confirmed, as well as Master Classes realised in collaboration with Department of Cultural Heritage and Flaminia Foundation for University in Romagna, that this year were launched by Roy Menarini with an inspiring lesson on complex serial television.
Nightmare School also includes study/work combination project with high school classes actively contributing to the Festival mainly in communication and organization fields. Of course, it is still on our call for Nightmare Natives, volunteers working with RNFF staff.
