One of the primary concerns of the Festival is to offer students a truly worthwhile form of artistic and cultural education in the appreciation of films, thus opening their eyes to the moving images that they so often consume without taking a step back to reflect. The Festival therefore offers various curricula covering a mixture of cultural heritage, archive footage, documentaries and competition entries. These programmes provide a comprehensive overview of the subject, supported by leading experts who will be working shoulder to shoulder with the educational teams brought in for the event.
In its fifth year, the festival pursues and expands its partnerships:

Centre d’Interprétation Marne 14-18 de Suippes

Elise Tokuoka, service des actions culturelles, pédagogiques et scientifiques, ECPAD
Pascal Vey, service éducatif second degré La Comète
Régine Gauthier, service éducatif premier degré La Comète
KIDS EXPERIENCE WAR ON SCREEN
One of the aims of the Festival’s young audience programme is to question primary school students about the way in which conflict is shown in the media.
In general, children are spectators of violence on television, whether real or fictional. How do children perceive the deadly conflicts of adults? What is their relationship with depicted violence? How can the image be an analysis grid of this violence?
The Festival is an opportunity to provide answers to their questions or critical tools which allow them to view the images of their day-to-day lives in a different way.
The project is then validated as education in the visual image.
