Bollywood Project

Special guest the Study Hall School of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India. A very international edtion also due to the presence of a group of Afs-Intercultura foreign students coming from Asia, South America, Turkey and Northern Europe.

Our experts involved Indians and Afsers in a video making production filmed along the streets of the old town and not only… dubbing and theatre workshops as well.

Many more activities were offered to our guests in the evenings, Welcoming party, Speakeasy Road Show by Clive Griffiths, a movie night and an Indian-style dinner with traditional dances.

A selection of all the best videos were shown to an audience and the Festival jury. They were produced by local and national schools – from the North to the South of the Boot- and on the final day prizes were awarded.

Bollywood Project

It’s a project to widen horizons and explore the culture and life of India by building bridges between the Italian and Indian film culture via the exchange of students and the realization of a short film in India. The two schools involved are the Indian school ‘Study Hall’ from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, and the I.S.S. ‘Vittorio Fossombroni’ from Arezzo, Italy. The project was also made possible thanks to AFS -India and AFS- Italia who played an important role in the first contacts between the two schools and have been of help in the organization of the two trips.

Phase 1: Italy – Arezzo 17th/20th April 2013

A group of about 10 students visited Arezzo from 10th to 25th April 2013 and was special guest of Cinemìcinemà Movie School Festival 4th edition. They had the chance to experience Italy as a country of art and cinematography as well as discover everyday life in an Italian family and school.  They were hosted by some of our students and also attended some lessons in the morning. They also met the other foreign guests of the festival and took part in some workshops, from shooting a short film to dubbing some film scenes into Italian.

Phase 2: India – Lucknow 27th Oct/6th Nov – Mumbai 6th/10th Nov

A group of our students visited the school in Lucknow from 27th October to 5th November 2013. They were hosted by Indian families and lived the Indian way. There they shot a short movie about the different styles in family life and school system, appreciating the traditions and the culture of Uttar Pradesh by taking part in dance, language and cooking workshops. Once in Mumbai they visited the city and had the chance to see the Bollywood studios and meet and talk to someone working there.
