We asked young Europeans to submit their short works about multilingualism to win a place aboard the Cine-Boat, an itinerant filmmaking event travelling across the beautiful archipelago of Turku, Finland.
Our 18 winners attended the Cine-Boat workshop from 3rd - 17th June 2011, during which they travelled by boat, visiting the islands and shooting films about the local forms of multilingualism. The region is home to many Swedish-speaking communities, which have their own distinct cultural identity.
From the 3rd to the 7th of May 2011, NISI MASA representatives from across the network gathered in Pristina, Kosovo, to take part in a seminar on the topic of "Tackling New Media issues".
The seminar focused on the exchange of knowledge, ideas and experience with regards to promoting youth audiovisual initiatives and organisations using New Media tools (websites, online social networks, blogs, viral videos, electronic press kits, etc).
Activities included plenary discussions, presentations, workshops and case studies and were supported by guest speakers from the communication/media field. The aim was that organisations were able to develop new strategies for the future.
Members representing the entire NISI MASA network were present at the Early Melons International Student Film Festival in Bratislava (Slovakia) from the 18th - 20th March, for the occasion of our annual General Assembly.
Early Melons shows a diverse selection of Slovak and foreign student films. One of its basic aims is to enrich the offer of audiovisual cultural events in Slovakia and get Slovak audiences closer to the phenomenon of student cinematography. The Early Melons project aims to encourage cultural exchange and partnership between different countries and schools.
