CINAGE - European Cinema for Active Ageing

Altheo Valentini, Associazione Centro Studi Città di Foligno (Italy)


As a response to Europe’s demographic ageing and the consequently increasing of social stigma about older people, four European countries – Portugal, Slovenia, Italy and United Kingdom – came together to develop CINAGE – European Cinema for Active Ageing (Project No.: 538672-LLP-1-2013-1-PT-GRUNDTVIG-GMP), a project that offers a new approach on learning for active ageing through film practices and shared cinematographic experiences. CINAGE ultimately aims at producing, testing and validating a package of film-oriented tools and learning strategies that will be the base for a cinema course for elders, culminating in the production of 12 short films by citizens of the specified age group, by 2015. Alongside with fomenting critical thinking and self-reflection methodologies, CINAGE’s innovative character is its andragogical dimension, since it will engage the elderly with filmmaking practices to creatively explore their age experiences, and thus promote a change in mentalities towards achieving a more active ageing.

The CINAGE project ( is a Grundtvig multilateral project, supported by the EU Lifelong Learning Programme.
