A few decades ago film directors were telling us stories, nowadays this language can be used by grown-ups and children alike. Digital culture is characterized by visual and auditory expression and imagery.

The goal of the BFM Children's Film School is to develop creativity, audiovisual literacy and media awareness in children by teaching them different values. In the learning process the child becomes a researcher, explorer and experimenter.

BFM Children's Film School aims to teach children in the age range from 6 to 16 the following:

  • skills in audiovisual storytelling
  • introducing different creative professions and BFM as well  
  • to enhance the value of digital culture, eg. ethical values by children creating different media components (short film, TV-news, social advertisement, animation techniques  etc).
  • produce wiser and safer consumers of digital media

BFM Children's Film School is a joint project between the following Schools of Tallinn University: School of Educational Sciences and the NGO Avastusõpe - Learning by Discovering.
