DG DEVCO and DG NEAR, in close collaboration with EEAS and FPI are developing a communication initiative named “Meet the Neighbours of the Neighbours during COVID-19 time”.
The initiative will offer students and youth from Europe, Africa and Mediterranean the possibility to open a virtual window towards different cultures by giving them free access – through the streaming platform Festival Scope – to quality films from Europe, Enlargement countries and from Southern Neighbourhood.
A secured on-demand access to around 40 feature films will be provided, changing titles every week. On the same platform, around 20 European feature films will be accessible in Africa and the Mediterranean, and another 20 African and Mediterranean feature films will be accessible in Europe and in the Western Balkans. Every week five new movies will be accessible in the respective regions.
The initiative will be launched on 9 May, on the occasion of 70 years of Schuman Declaration, and it will last 27 days (until 4 June 2020).
