The objective of the nationwide Film Literacy Program is to strengthen the critical, cultural and creative capacities of children and young people in schools. The school cinema program “Med Skolen i Biografen” (“Cinema in schools”) now reaches 250.000 students in 80 pct. of municipalities and cinemas presenting artistic and cultural significant films from all over the world – including study guides. 85 pct. of the tickets are sold to non-American titles. The streaming site “Filmcentralen” is now on demand in 90 pct. of Danish schools, which gives almost 600.000 students access to 1.500 short and documentaries and educational tools, covering a diversity of local and global issues. The Danish Film Institute is implementing a new pre-school digital strategy in order to reach out to day-care institutions with creative tools and films.
