Film & TV
By Nathalie Charles, Program Manager, CinéSchool
CinéSchool is a film program for young audiences produced by Villa Albertine, the French Embassy, and FACE Foundation. The program aims to promote French and French-speaking cinema to schools across the US, and is open to French teachers.
With free screenings adapted for various age groups—from elementary school to high school—CinéSchool seeks to offer young people of all backgrounds the opportunity to see curated French content.
Whether they study French as part of a dual-language program, learn French as a foreign language, or pursue French as their heritage language, CinéSchool aims to provide diverse cultural content to students. The program is designed to engage children and teens in ways that complement and enhance their French language education in the US.
All the films will be available on the movie streaming platform FestivalScope on the dates listed in the brochure (visionnage en ligne) or on this page (in English). The online screenings take place on weekends, allowing students to watch the films at home on a tablet or computer.
As there is a limited number of views per screening, please register here.
