Formentera Film Fest organises film workshop for island youth, directed by Pilar Aldea

The Office of Culture and Office of Youth of the Consell de Formentera are pleased to announce that 25 April to 1 May, Pilar Aldea will lead a free film workshop for local 12- to 18-year-olds as part of Formentera Film Fest. Interested parties can register at the Casal de Joves or by sending an email to monica@formenterafilm.com.

At "LET'S MAKE A SHORT" (FEIM UN CURT), young people will use new technologies to make short films like, as organisers put it, the "films of yesterday", covering pre-production, production, post-production and screening. The objective is to guide participants in the footsteps of grand masters of early cinema like Segundo de Chomón (1871-1929), Alice Guy Blaché (1873-1968), Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) and Buster Keaton (1895-1966), using current tools such as digital cameras, video stabilisers (cymbals), LED lights, key colour tools (chroma keys) and computer editing programmes.

16 May the results will be screened outdoors the Casal de Joves courtyard.

Consell presents summer sports and leisure offer for Formentera children and youth

Today the Office of Sports and Office of Youth of the Consell de Formentera presented the activities offered for local children and youth during the summer holiday. The Consell has put together a document covering the entire offer of the Summer School (Escola d'Estiu), sports clubs and other entities so that the public can find all the information in one place.

Vanessa Parellada, youth affairs councillor, hopes that "giving families all the information now will mean they can organise themselves in advance", adding, "The subject of the summer activities is crucial, because on our island it is what allows many to reconcile work and family".

Paula Ferrer, sports councillor, highlighted "sports clubs and organisations' effort and commitment to prepare a complete range of activities that children and adolescents can enjoy this summer" and "the joint work between the Office of Sports and Office of Youth to provide solutions to local families".

Summer activities and Escola d'Estiu
Every year, the Escola d'Estiu is organised and offered at Mestre Lluís Andreu and El Pilar de la Mola primary schools and Espai Cultural de Sant Ferran.

In addition, summer sessions at the Basketball Club will include functional training and swimming lessons; the Tennis Club will hold training and practices at the Tennis School; both Club Cosmitos, the football camp of SD Formentera, and the Sailing School, will hold practices; Es Roco will offer climbing lessons, and dance, theatre, percussion and creativity camps will be held as well.

Registration for most of these offers opens 2 May.

Job offers
Until 4 May the Consell will seek to fill 26 openings for youth activity leaders, three for activity centre directors and four for special needs assistants at the Escola d'Estiu.

Complete details on the offer and registration is available on the Convoca platform, which the Consell de Formentera has created to make the process easier and more intuitive.

This new space will be used for all future job postings by the Consell de Formentera. The listing can be viewed here and at www.conselldeformentera.cat.

foto 2023iv casal 15 AThe Office of Youth of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that the Casal de Joves staged its 15th anniversary celebration on Friday 31 March. At 4.30pm, parents, children and many others came to see the facilities and meet Casal youth and staff at an open day.

Vanessa Parellada, youth councillor, came to the party to celebrate that "15 years on, the Casal de Joves is a benchmark and meeting place to share and grow for the multiple generations of local youth here today". Activity leaders, whose dynamic work she applauded, "are on hand to offer support and oversee programming tailor-made for Casal youth".
