Open Futures in India

How filmit is linking schools in the UK and India

filmit India is a partnership between Open Futures schools in the UK and 100 schools in Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai.

Working with the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) filmit India sees children in the two countries creating short films about their lives, their schools and their culture. By uploading them to the Open Futures filmit website schools across the country and the world can watch and comment on the films. The exchange has provided a means for communication between different cultures and not only helped children learn about each other’s cultures but it also engages them in new ways of seeing and understanding their own.
