Between the 17th and the 19th of November, Fortress of Culture's team participated in final meetings and workshops within the Connecting Cinemas in Rural Areas project in Berlin and Kleinmachnow, organized by the leading project partner Neue Kammerspiele, and the Public Art Lab. The themes discussed in meetings and workshops were the evaluation of the work done so far, an overview of all the previous activities, and a plan for the final project activities.
In the project's final live meeting, apart from the host and the Fortress of Culture team, other participants included: the partners from Cinema Star (Veria, Greece), Cinema Amza Pellea (Rasnov, Romania), the KEA European Affairs (Brussels, Belgium), the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (Netherlands), and the M2C Institute (Bremen, Germany).
It was an opportunity for visiting the cinema culture center in Kleinmachnow which dates back to 1936, as well as exploring the possibilities for future cooperation once the current project is officially finished.
