Educational Film Evening in Vushtrri

On May 27th, 2011 the Basic Education Program organized its third Educational Film Evening
in “Cultural House” (“Shtëpia e Kulturës”) in Vushtrri/Vučitrn. The purpose of this event was
to move professional discourse beyond the purely technical towards issues of educational
philosophy and engage the vocational spirit shared by many educators.



The event lasted around two and half hours. It started with a short welcoming speech from Lirije
Ferizi, Education Officer in Vushtrri/Vučitrn, followed by the program COP who also welcomed
the participants and introduced the movie “The Hobart Shakespeareans”. After the screening,
a panel of three local respected educationists began a discussion of themes within the film.
This panel consisted of: Lirije Ferizi – Education Officer in Vushtrri/Vučitrn, Bajram Beqiri -
Parent Council President at Kosovo level, and Sadete Rama – Teacher at “Mustafë Venhari”
School. The event continued with the involvement of members of the audience, questions and
comments about the movie. The evening concluded with informal discussion over refreshments.
Qerim Selimi, Municipal Education Director, expressed the need for organizing these kinds of
events for teachers in Vushtrri/Vučitrn once a month.
