Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola's educational project is concretised in three programs: Film Conservation Studies, Film Curating Studies and Filmmaking Studies
The purpose of the EQZE is to train filmmakers in the broad, cross-cutting sense of the term; filmmakers that can actively confront and interact with the cinema of the past (through research and preservation), with the cinema of the present (through curating and programming) and with the cinema of the future (through creation) developping a comprehensive unitary vision.
We like to refer to the EQZE as precisely the school of the three ages of cinema, because the three institutions that worked together to set it up aim to study and work, precisely, on the past (Film Library), the present (the Festival) and future of creative cinema (Tabakalera). EQZE pictures this educational project through three postgraduate programs: Film Conservation Studies, Film Curating Studies and Filmmaking Studies. As a whole, these three postgraduate courses identify and define our idea of cinema.
