Young Programmers: young audiences back to the movies!
Z-Power. Young people back to the movies is a free initiative promoted by a network of Italian cinemas, with the support of Europa Cinémas – Creative Europe-Media-Sub Programme within the framework of the Collaborate to Innovate Programme.
Z-Power. Young people back to the movies sees the participation of a group of young spectators (Young Programmers, aged between 9 and 23) in the programming and management of their cinema.
The Young Programmers of each cinema decide together which films to programme, prepare supporting materials, design a communication strategy to involve the audience and finally introduce the film to the public on the days of the screenings.
