WoS and Students
The Feature Film Student Jury
For several years WoS has welcomed a Feature Film Student Jury made up of students from our various partner schools. This year, it will include students from the Reims and Nancy Sciences Po campuses, alongside students from the Châlon branch of ENSAM (National School of Arts and Professions). For six days the thirteen members of the Student Jury will watch all international competition feature films before awarding the WoS Student Prize.
As part of the partnership with the Reims Sciences Po Campus, five students spend the entire length of the festival as the editorial team of The Gazette, the WoS daily paper. They explore the backstage of the festival, its programme, events and, each morning, publish a new edition in collaboration with a student graphic designer from the Metz ESAL (Lorraine College of Art).
The Cordées de la Réussite
The Cordées de la Réussite educational project aims to boost access for young people to higher education, irrespective of their socio-cultural background, by joining forces with, amongst others, the grandes écoles. At the Reims Academy, the Reims Sciences Po Campus student association Des Pistes pour la Réussite represents this national programme. The War on Screen Festival is the proud partner of this association, where every year secondary school classes are tutored by Sciences Po students and discover the life of a festival and its programme.
This year, the War on Screen Festival welcomes a number of students from prestigious foreign universities for an intense week spent broadening their respective fields of research. Students of the Film Heritage programme from the Film universität Babelsberg Konrad Wolf will be given the opportunity to work on the theme History & Cinema, while students of comparative literature from the University of Cambridge will work on the transition from text to screen.
University of Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne
Founded in 2016, the Montage d’Archive workshop arose from a desire to experiment with new links between cinematographic research and creation. As part of the Master 2 History of Film, students made a series of short films using archives taken from the ECPAD, INA and the Film Library of Savoie and L’Aisne. As part of WoS, seven short films on the festival’s theme will be screened, and a professional jury will name this year’s winner.
