ABSTRACT

The UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) was created in 2004 aiming to foster parnerships and strategies between cities that promote creativity as a key-agent towards sustainable urban development. These cities are divided in seven groups from different fields: Design, Gastronomy, Music, Literature, Media Arts, Crafts and Folk Art and Film. Within Film, an education strategy for the seventh art is one of the vehicles for sustainable development of the urban contexts addressed by the group. Aligned with projects outside the UCCN that also use Film as an educational fundamental tool, the UNESCO Creative Cities of Film highlight that role and implement, explore and develop it in strategies designed for local and national realities. This way, a panoramic analysis over some of these practices, within UCCN, will contribute to identify updated and global challenges and opportunities within the relation between Film and Education.

A Rede de Cidades Criativas da UNESCO (UCCN) foi criada em 2004 com o objetivo de dinamizar parcerias e estratégias entre cidades que promovem a criatividade como agente-chave para o desenvolvimento urbano sustentável. As cidades dividem-se em sete grupos de áreas distintas: Design, Gastronomia, Música, Literatura, Media Arts, Artesanato/Arte Folclórica e Cinema. No campo do Cinema, a estratégia educativa da sétima arte é um dos veículos para o desenvolvimento urbano sustentável dos diferentes contextos que o grupo interpela. Na linha de projetos externos à UCCN que promovem o Cinema como ferramenta próxima e fundamental para a educação, as Cidades Criativas do Cinema da UNESCO relevam esse papel e aplicam, exploram e desenvolvem-no em estratégias pensadas para cada uma das realidades locais e nacionais. Deste modo, uma análise panorâmica sobre algumas dessas práticas, no âmbito da UCCN, poderá contribuir para a identificação de desafios e oportunidades, atuais e globais, nas relações entre Cinema e educação.
