On September 12-13, 2018, the project “Common Initiatives to AcKnowledge and valorize tourism potential of the programme area through cinema” (CIAK) was launched through its kickoff meeting that took place in Bari, Italy. CIAK is funded by the Interreg V-A Greece-Italy Programme 2014-2020 and the kickoff meeting was hosted by the lead partner, the Foundation Apulia Film Commission.
Ionian University is a CIAK project partner, represented by the Department of Audio and Visual Arts, being responsible for organizing and delivering the planned educational activities starting in 2019, as well as theme-specific festivals. The partners consortium also includes the Regions of Ionian Islands, Western Greece and Epirus, leaded by the Foundation Apulia Film Commission based in Bari, Italy.
For those who are interested in participating to specific project educational and funding activities, a number of open calls are expected to be issued in the next months.
