For some 26 years, the Cinémathèque française has nurtured a unique international film education programme called Le Cinéma, cent ans de jeunesse. Born in the centenary of cinema, the programme has evolved over many years into the longest established, and many would argue, the foremost film education programme in the world. After supporting it for so many years, the time has come for the Cinémathéque française to hand it over to a bigger group of organisations to take responsibility for the next phase of its extraordinary life.
What is the programme?
CCAJ began as an initiative of Alain Bergala, French cineaste, theorist and educator, and Nathalie Bourgeois, Head of Education at the Cinématheque française, in 1995. From the beginning film archives have played an essential role in this program.
The participants include ‘cultural partners’ cinematheques and film initiatives, who co-ordinate workshops in a country or region; teachers, educators, and filmmaking professionals who run project workshops; and the learners themselves, children and young people aged between the ages of 7 and 18.
The Filmuni Summer School is organising the Digital Archive Summer School in cooperation with FIAF Cataloguing & Documentation Commission and the Deutsche Kinemathek. The Summer School is a 5-day (6-10 September), practice-oriented educational offer directed at staff members of audiovisual archives as well as any other interested person who are interested in enhancing their knowledge about digital environments and processes related to digital archives. The focus is “Data Literacy and Presentation strategies in Audiovisual Archives”.
The Summer School Digital Archives can take place on-site at the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf this year. Since the Summer School has received many requests regarding online participation, they have decided to stream parts of the program for people who may not be able to travel due to the pandemic or its economic impact.
An overview of the preliminary program and which content will be available online can be found here.
Location: Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF, Potsdam, Germany
Cost: 1195,- EUR (in-person participation)

In 2008 ACE started the European Film Gateway (EFG) project, linked to Europeana, as the first project to make our film heritage available online. The project confirmed the importance of metadata, and highlights its interoperability. The second step for ACE was the EFG / World War I project, a curatorial project for our film collections online. At this stage, more than 53,000 videos (videos, not films!) are available.
The European Film Academy is proud to present the 8th Edition of the European Film Academy Young Audience Award, an event that this year involves 55 European cities from 34 different Countries.

EFA YAA – European Film Academy Young Audience Award will be held on Sunday the 5th of May in all 55 institutions, where young jurors will watch the nominated films. Afterwards, the secret vote will take place and it will be unveiled together with that of the other participants from all over Europe during an official ceremony in Erfurt (Germany). The announcement of the winner will be broadcast live on yaa.europeanfilmawards.eu.
In November 2016 the European Audiovisual Observatory has carried out a survey among the members of the Association des Cinémathèques Européennes. The objective was to assess the access to the film works in their collections in the context of education and research. 32 ACE members replied to the survey, representing over 1.1million film works.
The study “Access to film works in the collections of Film Heritage Institutions in the context of education and research” was part of a research project supported by the European Commission.” It can be downloaded HERE.
