FLICK (Film Literacy InCubator Klub) is a project co-financed by the Creative Europe / MEDIA programme, in the frame of the Film Education strand. FLICK is developed by Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna, EYE FIlmmuseum (Amsterdam), Cinemathèque Royale de Belgique (Brussels), Deutsches Film Institut (Frankfurt), Les enfants de cinema (Paris), Association des Cinémathèque Européennes (Brussels). This group keeps the partnership alive after two years of ABCinema Project, trying to go a step forward into fostering Film Education acknowledgment as part of youngsters’ cultural heritage and horizon.

The aim of the project is to build up a platform (Klub) where different types of stakeholders involved in Film Education and Audience Development can work jointly, in order to increase the awareness of the importance of Film Education, of the chances connected with the availability of digital resources and tools in this field, the outreach and efficiency of actions linking European Film Heritage and Education. Facing new challenges, identified also thanks to the practices experienced in the frame of ABCinema Project, this project aims at highlighting new perspectives for the role of Film Education in school curricula.
