We asked young Europeans to submit their short works about multilingualism to win a place aboard the Cine-Boat, an itinerant filmmaking event travelling across the beautiful archipelago of Turku, Finland.
Our 18 winners attended the Cine-Boat workshop from 3rd - 17th June 2011, during which they travelled by boat, visiting the islands and shooting films about the local forms of multilingualism. The region is home to many Swedish-speaking communities, which have their own distinct cultural identity.
The filmmakers then presented their work during a POLYGLOT film festival on 18th and 19th June, as the city of Turku celebrated its status as European Capital of Culture. All short films of the project will later be diffused through a DVD compilation and follow-up screenings across Europe.
The 24th May, the 6 documentaries result of the Cine-Boat workshop will be screened at the 51st Cannes Critics' Week.
Here you can read the book/catalogue of the project with the description of the films produced and the itinerary though the islands of the archipielago Turku.
