Introduction to Media Literacy & Filmmaking

Every year we go to schools to introduce kids to Media Literacy

By now we know that one of the most effective ways to reach and connect with kids is through films. Given their attraction for kids, and the profound impact they often have, films can help build a bridge to learning. Children, in general, tend to be more attentive and cooperative when adults make use of their interest in films.


Every year we run an event to introduce children to media literacy & filmmaking through lots of play and fun. 

Over this week, participants will get insight into the mindful use and consumption of content creation. They are introduced to a variety of digital content creation and filmmaking activities. We will also discuss marketing campaigns, and distinguish between fake and truth. During this one week workshop, children will create a short film as well. This event is supported by the marketing and video production agency avision.lu

The workshop is run by filmmaker Andra and the mentors at 2030, WHEN i GROW UP.

100 % guarantee: YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE THIS!

  • Distinguish misleading media & marketing practices.
  • Learn the Hero′s Journey and create short clips.
  • Detect DeepFakes: How to counteract misinformation.
  • Storytelling and filmmaking allows participants to easier identify with story characters and, thus, understand they′re not alone in their struggles.
  • Filmmaking brings new meaning to ‘Seeing is believing.’ Living the experience is understanding it. And eventually helps with building positive resources.
  • Our filmmaking workshop gives children the chance to explore difficult subjects in a safe environment. It also allows the participants a chance to look deeply at the consequences of actions, outcomes and the options to take to rectify a situation.

Our workshops are an effective way for kids to gain both digital skills and media literacy while making the learning fun and creative. Most of all, they will develop and cement team collaboration and social-emotional learning competencies by making a film together.

Participants will get insight into lots of inspirational examples of pupil produced films. We’ll show them how to use the power of filmmaking – diving into the art of storytelling, live-action, animation, green screen techniques, postproduction and so much more – to share their message with the world.
