The new Inter-Rives series devoted to cultural heritage and youth

The new Inter-Rives TV documentary coproduction “Creative memory: the past meets the future”, promoted by COPEAM and ASBU, is ready for broadcast. The filmmakers appointed by the 10 coproducing TVs – EPTV/Algeria, HRT/Croatia, NMA/Egypt, PBC/Palestine, RAI/Italy, RTSH/Albania, RTVE/Spain, SNRT/Morocco, TRT/Turkey, Tunisian Television – have attended the two exchange workshops (Tunis and Rome) and completed their documentaries, according to the series’ format and main topic.

Focusing on young people who have been able to creatively and innovatively exploit the cultural heritage of their countries, to favour job opportunities, to promote sustainable tourism, to recover local sites and support old traditions, the producers chose a great variety of stories:
a   Turkish stylist who takes inspiration from the Arslantepe archaeological site’s frescos for his new fashion collection; a group of Palestinian photographers organizing trips to rediscover the landscape and the artistic heritage of their country; 
an association founded by a group of youngsters from the difficult Sanità neighbourhood in Naples (Italy) that, by restoring and taking care of some historical sites, are opening this troubled popular district to cultural tourism, thus creating employment for the local youth;
   young African talents working with an Algerian graphic design company for the production of 3D cartoons for kids taken from traditional tales of Africa.

The winners of the Prize for the best documentary of this edition of Inter- Rives are: "Listen to the stone" by HRT/Croatia and "First gallery" by PBC/Palestine

The series will be aired during 2018 by the partner TVs, and some promotional events will be organised also on the occasion of the celebrations for the European Year for Cultural Heritage, with a view to spreading out as much as possible the important and positive message of civic and cultural engagement delivered by this new Inter-Rives edition.
