The Film Corner An Introduction

The Film Corner. Online and offline activities for Film Literacy project aims to design, release and test an online platform for film education, exploiting the opportunities available through web 2.0 and thus developing innovative crossmedia approaches to teaching appropriate to the digital era in order to raise the levels of film literacy of young audiences across the European Union.
