Teaching, French educational system; secondary school, primary school, cinema


French school system has always taken the cinema’s educational dimension into account . Nevertheless, the full integration of films in the cultural and educational activities of French pupils only dates back to the 1980s. Indeed, films are part of the syllabus as an optional course in the last three years of secondary school. Besides, from primary school onward, a whole system which enables pupils to become familiar with the cultural and artistic dimension of films has been set up thanks to the collaboration of the Ministries of Education and Culture.
