Watching, Making and Understanding Film

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.

Each year we work with primary schools across Scotland to learn about film, make films and then come together to screen and discuss them at a special celebratory event at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Designed for young people aged eight to eighteen years the programme focuses on a specific theme each year: in 2018/19 The Situation; in 2017/18 Place & Stories; in 2016/17 Play; in 2015/16 Climate; in 2013/14 The Long Take and in 2012/13 Mise en scène.

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
