Understanding Cinema 2014


  • 2014

Understanding Cinema is a moving image education project based on the long running international film education scheme Cinema, cent ans de jeunesse - created by Cinémathèque Française in Paris.

  • Understanding Cinema’s creative approach to learning and teaching film encourages young people to look at their world and themselves anew and to skilfully create stories which reflect and express themselves. By creating a series of film exercises through the programme, pupils and teachers can make mistakes, discuss ideas and create authentic and exciting short films.
  • The focus for this particular project was: The Long Take

The programme aims to help pupils

  • Gain a better understanding of European/world cinema heritage.
  • Enhance their aesthetic appreciation of film.
  • Develop personal confidence whilst working on a group project.
  • Stimulate their creativity.
