European film tribute to begin in Copenhagen

From November 15-24, under the patronage of Pedro Almodovar, Europe will celebrate its film heritage with CinEd@ys Europe 2002.
Events related to CinEd@ys will be organised throughout Europe, with an opening event in Copenhagen on November 14, under the Danish Presidency, and, as the main event, a film and multimedia gala screening in Brussels on November 23.
CinEd@ys has two components: Cinema Heritage Week and Netd@ys Europe Week..
Cinema Heritage Week will give the people of Europe, and in particular young people, the chance to discover or rediscover masterpieces of European cinema and to become more familiar with their film culture. In many cities and towns in Europe, films from Europe's heritage will be screened in cinemas, (by the Europa Cinemas network in particular), and broadcast by national and local television. Cinemas and film libraries will organise special screenings for schools and young people, with explanatory talks. There will be appearances by film stars in cinemas, on the Internet and on the radio to present film classics and talk about European cinema.
Festivals and activities related to cinema will be organised by different CinEd@ys partners.
Netd@ys Europe Week has involved more than 500,000 young people and professionals in the creation and exchange of multimedia since 1997. “Watch it, read it, make it” are the three key words of Netd@ys 2002, which focuses on the moving image. Schools, training centres, museums, film libraries and cultural centres join forces to give young people the chance to chat with film experts on the Internet, to improve their knowledge of film heritage and their understanding of the visual image, and to use the Internet to play and to create and exchange material.
The European Commission (EC) is now looking for partners across Europe to contribute to the initiative, including local authorities, cinema owners, film associations and clubs, schools and education authorities, film festivals, and television broadcasters.
