Presentation abstract

The UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) was created in 2004, aiming to promote cooperation with and among cities that assume creativity as a strategic factor for sustainable urban development. In its mission, UCCN highlights creativity as an essential component of social and cultural development, fostering networks for art creation, dissemination and access related to each one of its seven creative areas (Crafts & Folk Art, Design, Film, Gastronomy, Literature, Media Arts and Music).The group of Creative Cities of Film contemplates 13 cities: Terrassa (Spain), Galway (Ireland), Bradford (United Kingdom), Bristol (United Kingdom), Rome (Italy), Lódz (Poland), Sofia (Bulgaria), Bitola (Macedonia), Santos (Brazil), Busan (Republic of Korea), Sydney (Australia), Qingdao (China), and Yamagata City (Japan). The cultural, social and educational role of cinema is one of the fundamental pillars of the positioning and strategic lines of action developed by each one of the member cities, in line with the orientations defined and sought by UCCN. Thus, and with this paper, we will seek to identify the most relevant practices developed by the Creative Cities of Cinema towards cultural and social sustainability, evaluating them in accordance with the mission and objectives of UNESCO and within a national and international panorama of projects and initiatives linked to important intersections between cinema, creativity and society.
