Media Literacy & Filmmaking Workshop (Toussaint Holiday)

Toussaint / All Saints Day Workshop For Kids

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.


We are running a filmmaking workshop accommodating a MAXIMUM of 6 children/session. Participants create together “Florinel stands up at school” – a tale of adventure, friendship and fun! This short film will revolve around the thematic of bullying at school.

This one-week long workshop is for children aged from 4 to 11. Over this week, participants will get insight into a variety of simple but effective filmmaking activities and social-emotional learning that will create awareness, cement and facilitate their understanding about bullying at school. During this one week workshop, children will create a short film around the subject of “bullying”.

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

100 % guarantee: YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE THIS!

  • In the film, Florinel will both interact with the participants as well as with the characters and props created by them.
  • Through Florinel, the participants will discuss how social & emotional learning helps prevent bullying at school and how to respond when bullying happens.
  • Eventually, Florinel helps the main heroes stand up to bullying at school.
  • 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.

This one week-long workshop is 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 social-emotional learning competencies through a film made 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.
